My wife found a dresser someone painted white and then donated to Goodwill. She had seen some people made an entertainment stand out of them and asked what I could do with it. Turns out its a fun project that really pushed me to think outside the box. I took the legs off the bottom along with the decorative molding and added my own legs. This dresser is solid 3/4” particle board and some large slabs of pine so it was not cheaply built and one heavy item. I took 4 of the 6 drawers out and installed shelves for movies and things. I then added a top that has a wooden floor look to it made of 2” pine strips stained with a dark mahogany stain and finished with a hand blended oil finish. Though it is more of a refinishing project I thought I would share the end product because it was fun looking past the dresser and finding a very functional entertainment center that is now a conversation starter when family and friends see it.
