They Turned An Old, Ugly Dresser Into Something You'll Want For Your Home

A few years back, Julie and her husband were gifted a dresser. It was a nice thought, but since it didn't really match any of their home's decor, it sadly went unused.

When they made the decision to start looking for new TV stands, the couple was disappointed with the options. It wasn't until they found a DIY tutorial that turned an old piece of furniture into a brand-new stand that Julie knew just what to do. She enlisted the help of her handy husband and they got to work on their outdated dresser.

This is the old dresser they otherwise had no use for.

First, her husband removed the drawers, sanded everything down, primed and painted, and added support boards for soon-to-be shelves.

The top drawers were also removed to make space for the cable box.

New, more modern drawer pulls were added.

Adorable wicker bins would serve as catchalls for TV equipment and other entertainment devices.

What a difference some paint and small design details make!

It just goes to show that almost everything has a second life if you just give it a chance! If you'd like more DIY inspiration, check out Julie's blog here.
