Ways To Upcycle A Dresser

I was searching the internet for ideas that you/I could up cycle a dresser. I love that you can take a thrift store, garage sale old dresser  and up cycle it into something else. So the next time you see a old dresser, grab it, even it’s the ugliest dresser you have ever seen. Even if it’s missing knobs or even a drawers, you can always do something with it!!! Even if you see a drawer all by itself, it can become something useful and a conversation piece all on it’s own.

Painting stripes on the sides is a fabulous idea…you could also wall paper the outsides or even in the insides of the dresser.

Use different wallpapers to make a beautiful design.Of course you can also decoupage your dresser

 

I saw the following wallpaper at Walmart. $29 For a roll. I happen to really love this design and plan on using it on a wall in my bedroom.

The uses for this Beachwood Peel and Stick Wallpaper from Jo-Ann are endless! Get creative with your home decor and add a beachy vibe to anything from a reading nook to an outdated dresser. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to transform your space. #DIYHomeDecorBeach

So what do you think? Are you ready to get your mojo on and try making over your dresser. Or even better….keep your eyes out for one at a garage sale or thrift store.

Thank you for looking! I hope I gave you some ideas!

    1. I am now in search of a old dresser. I do reviewing for some large companies and I just recieved a dresser to review. It’s so pretty but oh how I would love to turn it into something else. I’m thinking putting plants in the drawers and potting supplies in the cabinets. I just hate to put it outside.

      1. I don’t currently have a picture and can’t take one at the moment. I can try to describe it though. It’s basically rectangular. It has 6 drawers with each side having one small drawer and two large drawers. The front of the small drawer on the left side is broken off although I do have the piece to it. It is quite old (50 years or older?) It also has a small amount of water damage around it’s bottom, particularly on the sides.

      2. That’s great, you’re not limited to possibilities. Bathroom vanity or kitchen Island, I made a coffee bar out of one. Do you need an entertainment console, for your living room or guest room? You can turn it into so many gorgeous pieces. I found this you can check out for ideas: https://www.google.com/search?safe=active&rlz=1C1SQJL_enUS823US823&q=diy+dresser+upcycled&tbm=isch&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwi4qZ6t3qzgAhVnCTQIHS0wDOkQ7Al6BAgEEBE&biw=1517&bih=695 Copy and paste into search. I am sure you will find something. Need any help, just ask!

      3. Thanks. I will check it out. I thought about the kitchen, but not sure there is room and the kitchen hasn’t been renovated yet. The bathroom is a possibility as is the entertainment console. I have other ideas as well…but just not sure what I want yet!
