One of my favorite pieces of furniture is a dresser because of it’s function and storage. Remember the beautiful Shoal Creek Collection dresser that I had in the guest room? It started off with it’s traditional function in our guest room.
It also served a brief stint as a console/sofa table in our family room. Keeping board games, junk, photo albums, etc. neatly organized.
An extra surface for displaying books and decorative accents.
Then it was located in our dining room. I love it’s function has a buffet and extra storage for linens and serving pieces that we don’t use every day. And of course having a clean surface means an opportunity to create a festive seasonal vignette too. When I recently co-hosted a baby shower in our home, the dresser top was perfect for displaying the woodland themed cupcake buffet (and a big hit too).
And finally, the dresser has been moved to it’s final resting place…a nursery for the new little grandson who will soon be here to serve as his dresser and a changing table (add a non slip material to the bottom of the changing pad). We’re still working on the small apartment nursery but here’s a sneak peek.
Do you use dressers in non-traditional and unexpected ways? Could you use more storage in your dining room? Don’t have a kitchen island or have room for a little extra storage for serving trays, small appliances or kitchen odds and ends? Need extra linen storage in a wide hallway? Take a look around your home. Sometimes just moving furniture around inspires a fresh new look. Have any other creative ideas? See more about Sauder here.
