We’ve spent the last two weekends clearing out our garage. We took lots to Goodwill and we have a pile for a garage/Craigslist sale. One of the things I was debating on whether or not to sell is a vintage dresser that was the first piece of furniture I ever painted (before blogging). It’s huge! It takes up a good bit of space and I’m not sure it’s worth keeping the way it is now. So I thought I’d see how others have repurposed dressers to see if I can get some ideas.
I’ll show you my dresser at the end of this post!

There are lots of ways to repurpose old dressers!
Here’s what I have to work with.
I’m pretty sure I’ll remove the 2 large drawers since we want to use it for storage in the garage. They’re heavy and hard to pull out anyway. Smaller bins in their place would work well I think! **update – I wound up selling it to a neighbor!
