Do you have a nasty old dresser hanging around? Don’t be so quick to toss it. It has more life in it left than you might realize.
“But Lindsey” you say, “my dresser looks like it was attacked by a bear. It’s a piece of garbage. Garbage would consider it garbage.”
Not so, my friend. Check out how Gail repurposed this badly beaten-up specimen:
Ohhh yeah. She took out the drawers, stacked them up vertically, and made a bookcase!
What happened to the rest of the dresser? Would you believe it also became a bookcase? Check out Gail’s blog at My Repurposed Life to see!
“Ok, well what about this?” you ask. “I have an cheaptastic Craigslist dresser made from particle board and glue. I absolutely hate it, but at least it holds a lot of stuff. Is there any hope for me?”
Shush my dear. Of course there is. Mindi also had a junky dresser on her hands, and about 10,000 toys and video games at her feet. Awesomely, one problem solved the other when she used the dresser to create a video game storage unit.
Wait, what? How is it so perfectly narrow? She couldn’t have just tipped the dresser on its side. Did she saw it in half? Did she secretly buy this piece brand new and is only pretending to have created it from that old dresser? Is she a DIY DECEIVER?
No, nope, and of course not. She actually only used the drawers, just like Gail! She attached them together, turned them on their side, trimmed everything out, added doors and hardware, and stained it, BAM. Check out her blog My Love 2 Create and see just how many toys and games she was able to fit in there!
“Wow, I’m feeling it!” you exclaim. “There really is hope for every disgusto garbagedresser!”
Yes! You are seeing the light! Let me blow your mind one last time with this makeover from Corey, who has never seen a dresser she didn’t imagine as something infinitely better.
Yes, that before dresser and this after storage unit are one and the same. I can hardly believe it either! See the how-to at Sawdust 2 Stitches, then get busy making magic to your own super sad dresser today! I know you’ve got one somewhere.
