Repurposing Dresser/Changing Table

by Rhnee
Does anyone have any ideas for repurposing this dresser/changing table? I would love to keep it, but can't think of what I can do to update it. Thanks!

  • if you put a trim or edge around the changing part (that flat area), you could paint it and repurpose it as a bar or dry sink. that's a great piece for storage!

    I immediately went to the idea of a kitchen island. Take the one door off and replace with shelves in there. Paint a color to match your kitchen décor and add new hardware. I would also be tempted to get wheels for the base to make it moveable. Also how about making the larger top as a cutting board.

    People would die for that in their bathroom. It may be the nicest changing table I've ever seen. Ideas for a kitchen island or bar are really good. If you have a front or back porch or covered patio or grill, this could be very useful. Sand it lightly, then paint it with a couple of colors of exterior paint. Then seal it completely, even under the feet and the bottom and even more on the flat surfaces. So now you have another idea! Best wishes 😇

    I love the blonde wood, you very rarely see that anymore! Myself, I would leave it blonde if I could. It could actually be used for so many things, it is such a beautiful piece of furniture that I would use it where it could be seen.

    It would make a great pedestal for a bathroom sink.

    Entry way table? Change the knobs to give it a 'quick' makeover. Make a nice cat box-hiding-cabinet too.

    I saw a project where they took the top drawers off and lowered the top of the dresser to make a bench. With the taller side you'd have storage and you could use it in a mud room or entry.

    A bathroom vanity with a raised sink bowl and cool faucet.

    It looks to me to be a piece that is in very good sturdy shape. Continue to use it for storage. No home can have too much storage. Why even think about repurposing it?

    A wooden piece of furniture rectangular shape base can be very versatile with a little larger top, and suitable for any room.

    Inexpensive laminate counter tops can be purchased in different lengths from stores such as Lowes, Home Depot, etc. A counter top can easily be attached to a base such as your unit, easily by being screwed up from the inside, or with outside brackets underneath the overhang. The counter top can be mounted centered over the unit, or slightly off centered, if you want the base to fit into a corner.
