How many times have you driven past a dresser that was put out to the trash? Or walked by one at a flea market wondering what you could do with it? Or maybe even have one sitting in your basement without a purpose? Well, check out this idea...
Repurpose it by taking out a drawer or two and making a buffet for your dining room. You can also use it as a mini bar if you'd like. I'm thinking that if you still have that old changing table hanging around, it could be used the same way!
And if the drawers aren't too shabby, you can use them for storing linens, sweaters, or other items. Add an old piece of carpet or casters to the bottom of the drawers and slide them under your bed. Or you can add legs (as shown here) and stack them. Stack a couple of drawers, add a large tray to the top and use as a side table.
