With Spring quickly approaching (yay!!) everyone is looking forward to new beginnings and projects in our home. Planning a kitchen from scratch or gutting a bathroom can be costly but there are plenty of other smaller projects that can make for bigger transformations with little cash output.
As a New Jersey Decorator specializing in Redesign and One Day Decorating, my philosophy differs from traditional design. I rarely start a room from scratch and instead prefer working around what the client owns and loves.
For starters, I am always amazed at the amount of unused furniture people have saved in their garage, attic or basement. My goal is to always save you money by reusing what we can, and in most cases all that is needed is a fresh set of eyes to transform some of those forgotten pieces into something you’ll fall in love with all over again.
Today we are going to talk about dressers. Many of us have one of these in our attics or garages.. Too good to throw out but no longer needed and possibly even handed down from a family member so there is sentimental value. But if it’s no longer needed in the bedroom doesn’t mean you can use it somewhere else in your house.
Thinking outside the box and some elbow grease can turn that old chest of drawers into one of your favorite pieces. Consider using it in a foyer to store gloves, hats, etc..

To get this look consider adding decorative fretwork panels to the drawer fronts. Check out O’verlays to see their large selection and to get your wheels spinning.
Try to think of a dresser beyond it’s traditional role. Consider using a dresser as a sideboard in the dining room.
This dresser has been in my kids rooms over the years and made it’s way to my dining room a few years ago. I’m thinking of making some changes in here this Spring
but that’s for another post…
Or even as a media cabinet.
My goal with this post today is to get you to look around the house and see what you can repurpose in a new way and I know you have one of these dressers somewhere in your house!
Don’t let a small budget keep you from refreshing your spaces this Spring!
And you know if you need any help, I’m just a quick email or phone call away.
Till next time!
