no drawers

shelves in

cubbies full of fabric

end result


its not completely finished.
i am going to add doors.
and i want a few pull out drawers.
i also need to paint it.
the tape on the cubbies is a temporary fix
but the boards are so thin i cant figure out what to do.

oh, hey that's a great idea!  Instead of using pressboard or plywood or whatever that is, you can get some MDF or even some nice hardwood to use as shelves.  It's a great idea to put doors on it.  I saw a dresser at a thrift shop with the bottom slide brackets broken off and I was wondering what I could use the thing for.  Now I know!

for the bottom dividers you could glue thin strips of wood on either side of the dividers to hold them.
looks like a great idea! doors are a must to hide the clutter. I was thinking of little curtains.

If you're thinking 'curtains'...investigate the rods that swing out (such as used on vanity tables). Would make for easy acess and you could switch out the 'curtains' on a whim.

im not quite sure what youre talking about cam.
i think doors would make it simpler
and not so busy looking in my room.
so i might just stick with that.
thanks for the suggestion though.

Here are a couple examples altho a bit heavier and pricier than what I've used in the past. In lieu of an actual door, you can attach a swing rod (two small pairs...one for each side...or one large pair), make fabric panels and those become your 'doors'....per se. Affords a softer, more decorative touch. Granted, if you need more protection to keep children or pets out, fabric wouldn't offer that. Hope that helps clarify a bit.

That's a great way to reuse an old dresser! You should definitely post more pictures when you're completely done.
