Dresser Makeover; Two Pieces of Furniture Made From One Dresser

Pin It
This is just a quick post to show you a small part of what I have been up to lately.  Remember the dresser that I cut in half.


I used the top half to make a vanity (not yet finished, still need to add the sink), see that makeover here and here,


and today I am going to show you what I did with the bottom half.  I took a scrap piece of plywood, added some nice thick foam and wrapped it with some beautiful fabric.  I attached it to the top of the single drawer unit, and voila, a nice bench for an entrance or the foot of a bed, with storage!




Two pieces of furniture out of an old dresser, gotta say, the frugal side of me loves this!

  2. Thanks Sumaya, I love fabric! Sometimes have a hard time using it in case I come up with another use. This time I bought lots so I don't have to hoard it. :)

  12. You're my kind of woman. Wish we were in the same part of N.A. so my husband could meet someone else who knows there is new life just waiting for us to give to old stuff. Beautiful job and new life for that piece. That is likened unto us when we bring God into our lives.

  13. I love when folks are clever and reuse things that seem useless. We manufacture too much.low quality cheap crap I am a huge fan of repurpose. What you have done here is not only clever but you have yielded two beautiful pieces of furniture. You rock ...plain and simple. My prize for awesome goes to YOU!
