Lisa from Recreated Designs used Simplicity to turn an old dresser into her new TV stand! Read on to find out how…

I love this dresser! It has such pretty lines, is just the right size and still has its original wooden wheels. It came with our cottage when it was purchased, almost 40 years ago, but the dresser itself is much older than that.

Even though I love it’s beauty, it was getting quite beat up. It was in desperate need of a little makeover. We didn’t really need it as a dresser any longer so I decided to turn it into a stand for the TV.

One of the drawers had been broken at some point, so I decided to salvage the two good ones and make the extra opening into a shelf.

Once the piece of wood was cut and glued into place to create the new shelf, I gave it all two coats of the All-in-One paint in Simplicity.

The freshness and beauty of Simplicity was just what the dresser turned TV stand needed. It looks so crisp and clean now.

With a little paint, a piece of wood and some new hardware, it is now the ideal place for the TV while preserving the beauty of the piece. It is also the provides the perfect place to store DVDs and games 😉
