Even if you aren’t interested in refinishing furniture, you have to read Karen’s advice for helping a dresser recover from a bad breakup at Redoux Interiors. It’s hilarious! The point is, Karen often finds dressers that have been kicked to the curb…without their drawers. Like this one.
She explains that even when a dresser has lost what makes it a dresser–the drawers–it’s still possible to make it a useful piece of furniture. Karen often has to add some shelves and reinforcements, but with lots of creativity and a little paint and stain, she can usually salvage a lovely, new shelf from what was once considered junk. Check out how a great refinishing job and baskets transformed this old dresser.
