Recycle That Old High Boy Dresser

So that dresser you got from grandma has been repaired so many times that you can't count the repairs and all the drawers are broken but one? How about taking the spots where the drawers were and adding shelves. Put the one drawer in the bottom slot and you have nifty game shelves for all your board games.


Don't want the games boxes to be seen? Add some doors. You can make these yourself or look in your local phone book under Salvage and see if you have a Building Salvage lot in your area. If you do great, you just need to take your measurements with you and they will have lots of old cabinet doors for you to look through. A fresh coat of paint and they will look brand new. You could also add just one shelf down low and add doors and voila you have a cabinet for your television in the guest room. Add just shelves and no drawers and doors and you have a blanket chest for all those extra blankets.
