I just love it. Even though I don’t entertain much I am going to keep my eye out for one of these just for the fun of transforming it.

You might not be able to use the whole dresser, but wow what a great idea for the drawers. It would be a fantastic idea for the kitchen to store the cookbooks in.

Cover it yourself:

Sometime you may just have a piece of furniture you really love and all it needs is recovering. Yet you can justify the expense of sending it out to have it professionally done. If that is the case then maybe this will help…

– Old piece of furniture
– butter knife (totally professional tool I know – but it works!)
– flat-head screw driver
– pliers
– staple gun
– hammer
– sewing machine
– regular and zipper foot
– seam ripper
– upholstery fabric
– plastic piping
– iron
