Old Furniture Makeover

Painted Furniture Ideas, Photos and Answers

We LOVE finding a good, old, solid wood dresser.  Seriously we can't pass them up.  Cool legs, sturdy  drawers, and a hardwood top...oh to die for. We know you guys love them, too. But we get a lot of people who say, "I already have a dresser...what would I do with it?"  What can you do with a dresser?  :)  Well, my friends, let me just tell you. With a little help from Pinterest, here are our top 5 ways to repurpose an old dresser... 1) Sofa table/storage - just take out the top drawers and viola! You now have an awesome sofa tabletop to decorate as well as open storage shelves, perfect for books or baskets to hide the toys!  Plus you still have the bottom drawers to hide blankets, movies, toys, etc. 2) Entryway table.  This is a great use for a smaller dresser, though if you have a large entryway there is no size limit :)  Just a great way to add a pop of color, a little extra storage, and a place to set a vase, mirror, framed picture, etc. 3) TV console.  This is one of my favorite ideas.  You can still have all of the storage and the visual weight of a large cabinet, but with out the bulk.  Paint it or keep it natural, either way is fun! 4) Console table/hutch/whatever you call these things :)  Very simple, place a dresser against any open wall for easy decoration and storage.  Perfect in ANY room! 5) Bathroom storage.  We all need a place for towels/toiletries!  Especially in a guest bath.  Grab a small dresser and fill it up! :)  How adorable is that? And just to prove that some Pinterest ideas do actually come to life and they aren't all for people with perfect houses and perfect kids who sleep all day and let them craft... :)  here is a picture from my (kendahl's) living room with a dresser used as a TV console.  Heck we don't even have hardware on it yet and I still love it... So, does this help?  Can you think of the perfect place for an old dresser in your home?  Well if so, we can help you out!  We just got this dresser in yesterday and are so excited for someone to make it their own! {$200 - 45"w x 22"d x 33" t}  If you have been inspired and would like to bring this dresser home (and get a 10% discount!), just message us on our Facebook page or email us at allthingsnew215@gmail.com and say you saw the dresser on our blog!  But we only have one right now, so first come first served!

Reuse Old Dresser Drawers....pretty cool idea

Book shelves out of old dresser drawers.

I hate throwing things away that I know could be used for something else. I save breadties, I bag up plastic bags for the food pantry, I save all kinds of containers...I think I'm a little bit of a hoarder. I feel that, if there is another use for something, why not go ahead and reuse it. Yeah, usually the reused item isn't as polished or as manicured as its original purpose, but it does save resources and much of the time...not always, it saves us money. This past month, my wife and I had our upstairs bathroom redone. It was a total gut, down to the lathe and the joists. I tried reusing or saving as many of the items that were ripped out as I could. The shower stall was reused, the toilet was reused, I saved the old shower doors, medicine cabinet and the vanity top and am still looking for a use for those. One of the things I saved was the old drawers from the vanity. I didn't have anything specific in mind to do with them, but I saved them nonetheless. Well, the other day, I found my reuse for them. I decided to build a shelf for my son's room. Here are some before and after pictures of what my 4-year-old and I did with them... Using the drawers as puzzle pieces, I manuevered them until I liked the way the shelf was going to look. I then used the old drawer handles as my fasteners. I did have to do some extra drilling and nipping for the bolts, but really I tried to reuse even the same predrilled holes from before. Once I had the pieces mounted and fastened the way I wanted them, I gave everything one last tighten.  I then went to the local Tops Hardware store and bought a can of spray on primer.  I also bought a can of black spray paint, but once I got the primer applied, I kind of liked the way it looked, so I just left it.  Here was my finished product. So, now we've got a shelving unit, made from reused materials and one can of spray paint.  The total time involved was about 3 hours combined, and the total cost was about $1.98 for the spray paint. Now, my son can put his hotwheels, puzzle boxes, or whatever he wishes on it. I can take, too, comfort in knowing that the hard work put into those drawers 15 years ago can be reused for another 15.
