Do you have an useless hand-me-down dresser? Trash bound chest of drawers ?
Before you give it away, trash, or sell it, how about some other ways to use a piece – other than what it’s intended for?
Dressers are extremely versatile . With all the storage, they have almost endless possibilities !
Re-use # 1
While “entertainment” centers are perfectly fine and definitely serve their purpose ,
I love to use furniture pieces in their place. A lot of times these prefabricated pieces are boring . Create multiple looks with different styles of furniture pieces.

With the addition of a changing pad , any ol’ dresser will serve as a changing table. After a good coat of paint, a little distressing, new hardware , this piece turned out to be a show-stopping piece that any nursery would crave!

Turn any dinner party from drab to fab with this buffet !
|add height to the table for a more interesting layout|
|add little decorative extras for a more playful setting everyone will be talking about. But, be sure not to overcrowd !|
Holiday party display
A lot of times, when you are outdoors, party decorations can be lost amongst the natural outdoor settings. Make a huge statement by bringing your furniture outdoors!

I hope I made you think twice about tossing your old furniture to the curb. Or maybe I will inspire you to look around and find a special piece for you to bring into your home and mix it up! Always look past what something is used for and think, ” What else can I use this for?”
