I stumbled upon this dresser sitting by the dumpster one morning while taking out the trash.
Immediate thought: this could be my mini-bar! I rushed back into my apartment, grabbed my yard stick, measured the wall space in my apartment simply screaming for a minibar, and then went outside and measured the width of the dresser. And I had 2 inches to spare! Obviously I proceeded to drag the thing into my apartment, to await my DIY planning hehe.
Painting required of course... and new hardware. After I painted it over white, I decided to try something new and paint the top two drawer spaces a seafoam green. I think it turned out pretty well, and I really love using the stackable wine rack in the space.
At first I wanted to buy a shelf to install above and then get some stemware holders to nail underneath it so I can hang my wine glasses underneath. But the latter really only come in dimensions of 12" depth, while finding a floating shelf that deep is practically impossible. So I compromised by finding a 6" deep floating shelf and just storing some of my glasses on top.
I am using the drawers for linen storage since I do not have a linen closet.
When I painted over the top, I had to do several coats because the writing kept creeping through lol.
