I’m a huge sucker for anything vintage so this post should come as no surprise! Today’s post I’m focusing on dressers, as there are so many cool and unique ones floating around out there, you just have to find the right one that suits your needs. Now, don’t get me wrong, you don’t need to use your vintage dresser as a dresser only, there are many different uses, you can get pretty creative here. I put together a list to get you started, but the uses are unlimited. Which one would you do?

Ideas (for more info on each dresser just click on the picture):

Use It As A Normal Dresser (this one’s pretty obvious)

Dreamy Whites eclectic bedroom

Love the yellow colour!

This dresser is my own, I found it at the antique market for $50, what a steal!!!!! Although, it was in a lot worst shape then this and a b***h to bring home, I had Renee Elliott from Re: Creative re-finish it into this master piece. You can check out the before pictures on her blog, Eat.Live.Shop. Renee’s amazing transformation was even featured on Design Sponge, congrats Renee!!!

Use It As A Change Table (seems to be very popular)


Modern Vintage Nursery modern kids

Pearsons Room traditional kids

Use It As A Kitchen Island (what a cool idea, love these!!!)



Use It As A Bar Or Buffet (brilliant!!!)

French Larkspur eclectic dining room

Clarendon Street eclectic hall

Last, but not least…….

Use It As A Sink Vanity (my favourite idea!!!) 

Powder Room traditional powder room



I will be actually doing this idea in my bathroom on the current home I’m working on. If you find any old vintage dressers, make sure to send them my way, as I’m on the hunt.

Let me know what you think of these ideas or if you have any other uses for vintage dressers, I would love to see them!

  1. Antique furniture and home accessories are very nice period of furniture to collect and it is also becoming very difficult to find as these better quality antiques are becoming more rare and collectable.
