Repurposed for a purpose!

One thing I love about old dressers is how multi-functional they can become when they’re repurposed. Give them a fresh look with a few coats of paint and suddenly you have the perfect storage piece for a dining room buffet, a flat screen tv console, or even a functional office piece.

Here is one of my favorite pieces turned into a console for a media room.

If I’m looking for a piece to function as something other than a dresser, I usually look for a piece with a middle cabinet (rather than just drawers.) However, this 9 drawer dresser looks great as a sofa table in this living room and the legs on this particular piece really dress it up.

I kept this French-style piece for my own entryway, and since we don’t have a hall closet, I love that it provides great concealed storage.

And, here is a complete Simple Spaces office transformation finished off with a great looking piece for storing office supplies and paperwork.
