Multi-purposing Furniture

I love using a piece of furniture for something other than what it was made for. It's just fun to do. And anytime I can use a piece of furniture for more than one purpose is even better! I have posted about my sofa table before (a long time ago), but wanted to share more.

From the front door, it just looks like I have a regular sofa table behind my sofa.

As you can see, it is also a nine-drawer mahogany dresser. Great for storage!

The left three bottom drawers I use to store tissue paper, wrapping paper, gift bags, ribbon and tags. So easy to find everything when I need to wrap a gift quick!

One of the drawers on the right I use for school supplies. During homework time, if my kids need paper, pencils, a's all right there in the drawer. Easy to find.

I hope this inspires you to consider multi-purposes for furniture.

Be Inspired,

Oh so lovely and functional. I love that it is all right there organized so nicely, ready for some giftwrapping action.

What great storage ideas! Lucky you to have such a great piece for that purpose! Thanks for sharing and have a Happy Easter!

I too have a dresser for my craft/ gift supplies. It's not as cute as your though!!

Karol said...

Thanks Robin & Lisa. Kasey, that is neat that you use a dresser, too! I bet yours is cute! Come on. So glad to have something to post about. I will try to post a few days per week. Thanks for your comments, ladies. :)

I *need* a dresser like this! Your room is beautiful! The dresser looks great!

Karol said...

Thank you, Carmen! Honestly, you can find dressers just like this at estate sales and antique auctions. I purchased mine at an auction several years ago. :)

I have a big ol' chest o' drawers in our family room that houses my place mats, napkins, videos, cards, grandbabies toys, etc., and I love it! It's a great idea and gives me another "top of something" to decorate!
