I have been repurposing dressers chests and nightstands for years. I love changing up furniture, cutting it apart, painting it and giving it a new and useful purpose. Many times, these pieces are found cheap at thrift stores, on the side of the road, or my very favorite, dropped off on my doorstep. It's a funny thing--once you start collecting junk, it just sort of finds you. I hope you find something to inspire you to pick up a saw or a paintbrush and get busy.
