Goodwill Outlet Dresser Makeover

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, Goodwill Outlet is the greatest store ever! I always find amazing deals.  Just a few weeks ago, I bought a perfectly functional dresser for 99 cents. It was a little plain for my tastes, but I knew that it had potential. Here is what the dresser looked like when I bought it.


Before doing anything else, I sanded and cleaned it.  Then I removed the drawers and painted them gray.  I installed 3 Ikea SÄTTA handles for the drawer pulls.  As a finishing touch, I re-painted the dresser’s body.  It was a very simple makeover, but I think it made a world of difference.


I’m currently using it to store all of our tools and cleaning supplies.  It’s the perfect size and it fits nicely in our hallway closet.


Maybe I’m a little weird to be putting a dresser in a closet, when I could just as easily close the closet door and ignore the mess; however, I’m kind of a neat freak, so having an organized closet makes me so, so, so happy.  I even installed some cute little hooks to hang my broom and mops.  It’s all very orderly.


I think I’m going to tackle our bedroom closet next.  I can’t seem to keep it organized no matter how hard I try.
