TREND:  Repurposing Vintage Dressers!

Using a vintage dresser, sideboard, or credenza is a fun way to add a bit of character to a nursery or child’s room, and can often be a great way to save a little money.  If you look in the right places, a vintage piece is often considerably less expensive than a new one (asking family members for no longer used furniture is also a sweet way to add a little family history to the room, i.e. using Grandma and Grandpa’s dresser from their first bedroom suite, etc.!) and there are plenty of options for making it suit your taste.  The changing table can be a real statement piece in a nursery, and it was the first thing I found for both Vivi and Brigette‘s rooms.  Below are some of my favorite options for repainting (find sources and links to style boards below image) for some inspiration:vintage furniture updates(1) Similar Perspecta Dresser, from the Anchorman Nursery; (2) Ultramarine Dresser, from the Blue for Two Nursery; (3) Triangle Dresser (no longer available), from the Little Lone Ranger Nursery; (4) Gold Dipped Dresser, from My Little Surfer Girl Nursery; (5) French Gold Dipped Dresser, from the Mod Princess Nursery; (6) Peach Ombre Dresser, from the Pretty Little Peach Nursery; (7) Red Ombre Dresser, from the Cheery Cherry Nursery; (8) Blue Colorblocked Dresser from the Sailor Boy Nursery

  5. I recently searched and found a small vintage chest with one long drawer on top and two deep drawers on the bottom. I use it to store belts and scarves on top,purses in one drawer and sandals in the other. It is perfect. Changed the hardware to glass knobs.
