Revamping a Chest of {No} Drawers

Over at Crafty in Crosby, Jeanette had been searching high and low for just the right size piece of furniture that she could use for extra storage in her home. Her search turned up nothing....until the neighbors put out this old chest of drawers (without any drawers) on trash day. "It didn't have any drawers and several of the supports were loose, but it had a beautiful curving apron and was the perfect size for our little loft upstairs," says Jeanette.

Updating a Dresser

"This bedroom set was in my daughter’s room until a couple of years ago, when we moved it into our master bedroom," Jann explains at Newton Custom Interiors. Although this was a very well-made, sturdy dresser, the top had sustained some water damage at some point, and then there was the faux wicker on those upper drawers....things being what they were, Jann decided it was time to update this dresser.

DIY Mirrored Nightstand

This nightstand was sitting unused and falling apart in Sharon's home, she explains at her blog, Mrs. Hines Class. "I wasn't sure what to do with it and didn't want to get rid of it since it's a part of my parent's bedroom suite from my childhood home." So it had been moving around to different rooms, waiting for Sharon to figure out what to do with it.

Long Lost Dresser Found Again

This dresser, a family heirloom, used to live at Jamie's house, she tells us at So Much Better With Age. But when her mother-in-law got worried that Jamie might paint it, it was sent to live at another family member's house. There, it didn't get painted....but it did get left outside on a patio. By the time she spotted it and rescued it, Jamie had a mess on her hands.

Update for a Favorite Dresser

When this dresser fell into Rachel's hands, it had come straight from her grandmother's attic, painted a brilliant color of orange. Rachel painted with a much more subdued shade of grass green, and it's been that way for several years now, she explains at Maison de Pax.
