Dresser to Media Console

Simple Redesign dresser before

Julie blogs at Simple Redesign.  When she acquired this piece, she decided that having it continue it’s life as a dresser really wasn’t an option.  ”I never really liked the waffle pattern on the top drawers.  I originally tried to convince myself that it was kinda cool and different, but in the end, they had to go!” she exclaims.

Karen from The Weekend Country Girl has a bunk room at her weekend house.  A bunk room seemed like the perfect place to decorate with a cowboy-western theme, so she’s been collecting items for that.  When she came across an old, beat up dresser, Karen decided to spruce it up for the bunk room.

Dresser Makeover with Homemade Chalk Paint

Life Created dresser before

Stephanie of Life Created says, “I had just attended a “vintage” sale and had been gawking the many chalk paint creations: frames, side tables, buffets and dressers…when I decided to stop at Goodwill.  I walked around nonchalantly and this pepto-bismol-colored creation called my name.”  With visions of chalk paint dancing through her head, she immediately brought it and took it home.

French Provincial Dresser Refabbed

Martha Leone Design dresser before

At Martha Leone Designs, Martha says, “I found a listing on craigslist for two dressers and a buffet. When I went to the house to pick up the items, the owner showed me this pathetic dresser hidden away in the basement. The drawers were broken, the dresser was covered with grime, and reeked of smoke. He threw it in as a bonus to my other purchases.”
