There is something particularly rewarding about repurposing old furniture items. While shopping for new furniture or decor can be nice, there's something special about finding previously enjoyed items that have their own history. These items tell their stories through their nicks and scrapes. They might look a little bit scarred, but it's their imperfections that give them their charm.
When it comes to upcycling and repurposing, a nice wooden dresser is the ultimate thrift store find. Dressers have so many potential alternative uses that when you find a unique and attractive one, you should get it, even if you're not sure what to do with it yet. If the dresser is worn out past the point of restoring it as a functioning dresser, it could possibly be salvaged for parts. Wooden drawers can be used for a multitude of storage and aesthetic applications around your home. From bookshelves to gardens, the possibilities are endless!
