Repurposed Challenge #2 ( Dresser – 25 )

I was challenged by Michelle to find 25 ways to repurpose a dresser. This one was a little hard because most repurposed dressers I found were actually upcycled dressers. In another words, most dressers were still used as dressers they were just upcycled to look nicer. However, after several days of searching, I think I found a good list. Some are used as storage but not for clothes…..

What a beautiful area for your kids to cuddle up and enjoy their adventures in reading.

Great for small spaces, or if you want the layered look.

Dresser turned shelves with bins for storage. Organization and convince in one.

Sitting, Storage, and a mirror…. who could ask for more.

 12. (right) Litter Box Storage
Love love love this. There is a cat door on the side for your cat to be able to come and go, and the front opens to give you plenty of room to change the litter. Meanwhile, the smell and the mess is hidden away.



13. (left) Garden Bench
Here they made a plant area and tool area all in one. However, you could use this for your tools and supplies if you have bigger garden.

14. (right) Desk
Turn that old dresser into a desk customized just for you based on your needs.


15. (left) Cat’s Bed and Breakfast
Too Cute! His food and water on bottom and bed on top… Cat’s dream come true.

16. (right) Dress-Up Armoire
All her pretty dress up clothes in one area, ready to go whenever she is. I would put full length mirror on the side so she can make sure she is perfect for her debut.



17. (left) Kitchen Table
No more running back for extra silverware. With the drawers here you can have all the extra dishes in arms reach.

18. (right) Chicken Coop
Need a chicken coop? I don’t, but if you do use an old dresser with storage on bottom.

Organize all your goodies in here. Here are more  Craft Storage Solutions usingUnique Repurposed Items

20. (right) Storage
Glue the drawers on and add hinges to the top. Sounds simple enough, and so many things can hide in here. Bulky blankets, toys, dirty clothes, ect.

Dog bowls for food and water slides out on the bottom; while on the top you can store the bag of food and scoop.

22. (right) Bed Lift
I love space-saving storage ideas. Here they used dressers to give the bed a lift. Seems like a win – win. You get your bed comfortably off the floor and plenty of storage.



23. (left) Beverage Bar
Space for bottles, glasses, and anything else you could need in a beverage bar.

24. (right) Lite Display Case
Here they showcase a purse collection, but you could showcase anything you would like, big or small, with this idea.

dresser would work just fine.
