Ways To Repurpose Dressers Empty Of Drawers

So…what do you do with old dressers that you have robbed the drawers from for cool repurpose projects?  Well, you can use that empty dresser for a repurpose project of it’s own!  It’s like a double whammy.  That old seemingly useless dresser gets used in multiple ways that provide a lot more function and style than you would have probably gotten from trying to repair and refinish the dresser in the first place.

In case you missed it, make sure you check out my post on Ten Fun Ways To Repurpose Drawers for all kinds of creative ideas on reusing your dresser drawers.

As far as the actual dresser goes, all is definitely not lost.  There are lots of creative ways to repurpose dressers in new and functional uses for your home.

Here are some of my favorite.  Just click on the photos for more details on any of the projects.

This dresser makes a very stylish tv stand with handy storage as well.  The baskets are perfect for keeping movies or game equipment hidden.

It makes perfect sense to insert shelves where the drawers were to create a storage unit for craft supplies or whatever else you may need storage for.  This look is completely clean and chic.

Here is a creative idea that I found on Pinterest.  There is not a tutorial but all you would need to do is insert shelving where the drawers were and then insert a wood section, that has been notched out at the ends, to fit a wine bottle.

Do you have any other ideas for ways to repurpose dressers?  I would love to hear your ideas!

Happy Repurposing!
