I love a good dresser and I have a hard time passing them up when I find them in a thrift shop. Which is probably why I currently have six of them sitting here waiting for a makeover. Yes, six. #furniture addict
I think dressers are the most underused and under appreciated pieces of furniture because we tend to confine them to the bedroom. Which is really a shame because they come in a zillion different and can be easily updated with a couple of coats of paint. And because they’re so perfect for hiding clutter and extra storage, dressers are a great idea for pretty much any room in the home.
This beautiful dresser is painted a gorgeous shade of blue and used as a coffee/beverage station in the kitchen.
This thrift store got a makeover with turquoise paint before becoming a kitchen island.
Even the HGTV 2016 Dream Home got in on the action using three dressers for extra storage in the kitchen.
We’ve used a dresser as a media center in our living room for the past couple of years and are in the process of doing a new one. Hides a million toys and most of my office supplies.
This painted dresser is simple and perfect with a coat of white paint.
Removing a couple of drawers makes a space for those unattractive cable boxes and dvd players.
This vintage piece is stunning and holds a ton of stuff.
Not actually a dresser but a full buffet. Too pretty not to share.
A little blue paint and you’ve got some stylish storage in this dining room.
If you’re a little bit handy or you know someone that is, you can totally turn a dresser into a vanity.
Vintage dressers make pretty and unique bathroom vanities.
If you’ve got the space, dressers are perfect in the foyer for hiding all the stuff you’re dragging in and out of the house on a daily basis. I painted this one for the foyer in our last house and it hid our winter gear and extra baby things, including a small diaper bag. I was able to drill a hole in the back for my phone cord so my phone was nicely tucked away in the drawer when it was charging.
I love the pop of pink this dresser brings to this hallway.
The next time you’re at a yard sale or in the thrift shop, snatch that pretty dresser up even if you’ve got a full set of bedroom furniture. You can find the perfect spot for it later 😉
Have you used a dresser somewhere other than the bedroom?
