Tips And Ideas For Dressers
Keep it neat
It might be tempting, but don’t use the top of the dresser as temporary storage. This will clutter your room.
Opt for maximum storage
Choose as much storage space as possible, so that the dresser can be used in the long term as your family grows.
Go lighter
As long as it matches your other furniture, paint your dresser a light color to make it look less imposing and bulky.
Have a system
Don’t be tempted to throw everything into the drawers. Come up with a plan for where and how you store items in your dresser.
Keep drawers closed
Keep dresser drawers shut to prevent anyone bumping into them. This will also make the room look less busy.

Kitchen Island Made From Old Dresser

I’m sure by now everyone has seen a dresser turned into a kitchen island—I’ve been seeing them online for a while and have been wanting to do one myself, but just haven’t found the perfect old dresser. Until now. I went into my local thrift store recently and found the perfect little diamond in the rough—I’m so happy with how it came out! We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers. Just so you know, Hometalk may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page. BEFORE: Here is a shot of the dresser when I first brought it home. I love the etched detail in the drawers, which is a big reason I decided to keep at least one of them for my finished island.
