5 Ways To Repurpose a Vintage Dresser

Weekday Wreckers Dresser CollageI love finding old pieces of furniture and making it new again by slapping a coat of paint on it and adding new hardware. One piece of furniture you can do many things with is a old dresser. Just head to a local consignment shop, Goodwill, Craigslist or even your neighbor’s trash. That is actually the best place to find a dresser, because it’s free!

One way I want to use an old dresser for is as a TV Stand, I just haven’t found the right one. Other than a TV Stand or storing clothes a dresser can be used for many other things including kitchen storage, bar, kids toys and more….here are few of my favorites.

    Love the ideas! I’ve always loved the idea of a Welsh dresser in the kitchen, but we don’t have the room.

      Me too Carrie! I heard through a friend to start going on Craigs List. Sometimes you can even get things for FREE which is even nicer. BTW…did you link up? I know you have a ton of DIY to share 🙂 I am always inspired when going to your website.
