Imagine If - A Dresser Can Be So Much More!

I frequently see free/cheapie dressers on Craigslist. Oh, how pretty they can be! Here are a few I saw just today:

This one's listed at $25. I love the little door.

An this one's the priciest of the bunch, at a whopping $60, but is has a mirror, too!

The tough thing about dressers is that they have a deceptively large amount of surface area, should you want to refinish one. (Take this from someone who's got a partially refinished dresser in storage.) The wonderful thing about dressers, though, is that they can find a home in almost any room, adding stylish storage and counter space. Aside from the typical clothing storage they can be used...

Time to get cracking on that dresser again. Oh the things it can do!
