Creative ways for writers to reuse old dressers

January 20, 2015 at 9:20 pm Leave a comment

I have an old dresser that was once my grandfathers. It is falling apart and its drawers don’t like to open and close anymore. I don’t want to throw it out because it’s old and belonged to someone very special to me.

I have been searching Google for ways to turn the dresser into something that I can use for my home writing space. I have found quite a few ideas that I would like to share with everyone. Some of these I can’t use because my dresser is an upright with only 3 drawers, but they are all great ideas.

Turning the dresser into a desk

I am in need of a desk. I would love to do this, but haven’t found a tutorial for an upright dresser. Instructables has an easy to follow tutorial for making a desk out of a dresser. Another tutorial can be found on the Thrifty and Chic site.

Using old drawers to make shelves and more

A lot of useful things can be made from the drawers of an old dresser. Bookcases, mini bookcases, file holders, wall shelves and many other things can be made. I have also been thinking about making some of these out of the old dresser.

Those are just a few of the things that I have found during my searches. There are so many more that aren’t as useful for writers, but are still very great ideas.

Note: I do not have a link to the file holders. Those plans are in my head.

Have a great day, everyone 🙂
