Repurpose A Highboy Dresser Furniture
A highboy dresser can stand up to seven feet tall and is typically constructed of two sections: an upper chest of drawers stacked on top of a drawer base supported by four legs. By repurposing highboy dresser furniture, you give it a use other than that of its original design. Here are several ideas to repurposing your highboy dresser furniture. Salvage those rolls of wrapping paper that tend to get crushed in the back of your closet every year by making a stylish wrapping station. Leave the highboy dresser in its original wood stain or paint the outside a neutral color, and use brighter a paint color for the interior. Replace the shelves in the hutch with dowel rods on which to slide your rolls of wrapping paper. Use the drawers below to store tape, bows, scissors, gift tags, cards and other adornments.
Or you can turn your highboy dresser furniture into your personal vanity. Remove the lower drawers so you can comfortably slide your dressing chair under the highboy. Use the upper drawer of the dresser portion to store make-up essentials. Remove the shelves in the hutch of the highboy and adhere a mirror to the back wall. Screw eye-hooks into the doors to hang necklaces and bracelets. Complete your new piece by attaching a track lighting strip to the top. Thread the cord of the lighting track through a hole drilled through the top of the dresser, which may need the aid of an extension cord easily hidden behind your new vanity.
