6 Great New Programs for a Vintage Dresser

When I’m shopping at a flea market or antique shop, I usually place at least one classic dresser with a low profile along with three long drawers. Sure, dressers are traditionally utilized to store clothing in your bedroom. However, these low dressers also sit at that perfect elevation for use around the house as a changing table, bathroom vanity, media cabinet, sideboard, or home bar. So the next time you see a dresser you adore (but don’t need for your bedroom), think outside the box. There’s a special charm that a classic dresser adds to a room.
