    • Jen of City Farmhouse

      Jen says: My dresser hack was inspired by the idea that with the warmer weather comes the need to open our homes once again to gather with family and friends. I transformed this simple dresser into a moveable entertaining bar with easy accessibility for guests. By combining classic design with a cheerful palette, I was able to create a piece that is both functional and fun for indoor and outdoor use -- all on a budget.

      Jen says: The vintage library hardware with linen labels allows it to be user-friendly, and the DIY knobs and towel rack add to the function of the bar while keeping costs down.

    • Diane of In My Own Style

      Diane says: The vintage file drawers that got me into the March Madness competition is one of my most popular projects on my blog. It is a one-of-a-kind piece. I thought I would transform the dresser to look like my files so readers could get that vintage feel for their own home.

    • Diane of In My Own Style

      Diane says: I transformed the dresser into a secretary-style desk on wheels so it could be moved to where you want to work. I also thought it would be a great small desk for a child's room. The wheels add an element of surprise.

    • Jenn of My Fabuless Life

      Jenn says: I absolutely love the natural beauty of wood, so when I saw our assignment dresser, my immediate thought was: bar cart! The detail of the wood was already beautiful in its raw form, so stain was my natural go-to to bring out all of that amazing detail and give it the look I was going for.

      Jenn says: After the dresser was stained, I made some adjustments to the top drawer so the front flips down but the drawer still slides out to maximize serving space. To finish, I added some beautiful vintage-style hardware to really give it a midcentury, high-end look.
