I just rescued this dresser last night at our neighborhood curbside (today is garbage pick up day).  After bringing it home, I noticed it has more wear than I thought so I can't use it as it is.  It is old ugly brown dresser with bottom of the drawers bent, back has some stains that indicate that this was wet.  Inside the drawer cubbies has dirt and cobwebs probably sitting in a garage or storage.  I can use more shelves or bookcase for books and toys for kids so I thought how I can transform this into something I can use. 
Thank you for any advice.

I just did the same thing last week, my husband was mortified as we carried it down the road but I come from a long line of trash savers. Mine didnt have drawers but you can mount them on the wall to display stuff. So far I took out one shelf and all the things the drawers slid on and sewed some curtains. My goal is to sand and restain it.

You might be able to find baskets that just fit the openings.  I found baskets at Bed, Bath & Beyond that were lined with fabric, and two of them just fit our coffee table.
