Here is a cute idea for recycling an old dresser that is falling apart. First take out all the old drawers and runners. Take off the back. Install a shelf that hangs outside of the dresser all the way across the front.

Underneath the shelf on the inside of the dresser install two 2x2's that go all the way across the front. On the outside put a piece of MDF or plywood that has been cut to the size of the dresser. Above the shelf on the outside install a small curtain rod for curtains for your stage (the shelf). On the back staple two black curtains.


Now the fun part! Paint and decorate in bright colors. You could even make a plywood triangle the size of the top of the dresser to make it look like a circus tent. Put a small flag at the top.

Very nice idea! I bet this would work well with an old refitted book case as well. :)
