Taking old furniture and repurposing it into something beautiful and totally different from its original purpose is a thrilling thing. These furniture hacks are some of my favorites, and they’re sure to give you some great ideas. One thing I like about them is that almost all of these use common furniture that we see frequently as discards in someone’s trash, as a cheap buy at garage sales or thrift stores, or you may have something similar sitting in your garage.
1. Dresser Repurposed into Kitchen Island
As you can see, the bottom two drawers were removed, and new hardware was added to the two remaining drawers. A towel rack was added to one side and decorative feet were added to the bottom. A fresh coat of paint and you would never guess the origin of this kitchen island! This is one of the cleverest dresser hacks I’ve seen.
