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.
