Old dresser painted and turned in to a shoe rack. This seems totally doable with some paint and a thrift shop find for an entry way/shoe storage piece. But I would still place a boot mat with rocks down so the dresser wood doesn't get ruined.
Install a small spring tension rod shelf to add more space to cabinet for spices. The tension rod is strong enough to hold the smaller spice bottles and they no longer get lost among the larger bottles.
Repurpose a small dresser into a cute padded bench with storage. What a great idea for a guest room and a good way to refurbish a thrifted or roadside find. Toy room seat for parents to watch their chilred and store the toys! Rose For the end of the bed?
