A few years back, Julie and her husband were gifted a dresser. It was a nice saw, but because it didn’t really accord any of their home’s decoration, it sadly ran unused.
When they made the decision to start looking for brand-new TV stands, the couple was baffled with the options. It wasn’t until they found a DIY tutorial that became an old-time piece of furniture into a brand-new stand that Julie knew just what to do. She enrolled the aid of her handy spouse and they got to work on their outdated dresser.
This is the old-fashioned dresser they otherwise had no use for.
First, her husband removed the drawers, sanded everything down, primed and painted, and included reinforcement committees for soon-to-be shelves.
The top drawers were also removed to build infinite for the cable box.
New, more modern drawer pulls were added.
Adorable wicker bins would serve as catchalls for TV paraphernalium and other entertainment devices.
What a difference some paint and small blueprint items see!
It just goes to show that almost everything has a second life if you just return it an opportunity! If you’d like more DIY inspiration, check out Julie’s blog here.
