Creative home ideas have taken a giant leap into the future for some of the ways we repurpose More
I settled on a deal from Macy’s discount furniture section that gave me this six drawer dresser that was so damaged it was almost free. Then I got my sister’s brother in law to help me out with the dismantling and whatnot. Well, the “whatnots” were not precisely unimportant, so he did a lot under my keen observation and instruction (smiles). After we took the top off, the bench space had to be carved out from the areas made by two of the drawers. Next, the backing that was initially on the dresser had to be replaced by something more sturdy, because who wants to fall through the back of the chest right? So let’s get my reading nook furniture right! After we secured a better backing and covered up the bare frame, the airgun was used to add some more support after the glue dried. Next, we did the same for the seating and added trim to finish off the look. Finally, we stained the new top and seat then painted the rest of the dresser a glossy white. For storage I still had a good bit, just going down from six drawers to four. It turned out to be a good “invention,” and you can check out how I got the whole thing done and try it yourself!
