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 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 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 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.

KariAnne says: Here's an easy fun DIY project that anyone can create! The dresser is painted a vivid Sherwin Williams Ardent Coral and embellished with painted washers from the hardware department, white painted accents, and crystal floral knobs.
KariAnne says: I added a bookrack to the side with simple 1x2s you can have cut at the home improvement store, molding, and wood glue.
