Junky Dresser Turn Media Stand

I hope you didn't stop by today in hopes of finding some sort of dining room reveal, because that just did not happen. The good news is, we got started on the dining room. The bad news is, progress is slow going. The plan is to share updates weekly, so definitely stick around to see how we are getting along.

In the meantime, I wanted to share this junky dresser that we refurbished into a media center for our family room. Yup, it's hard to believe that this beauty was transformed from a $30 cast off, we picked up several months ago.

After we moved our old dresser/media stand from our family room into our bedroom to act as a nightstand, we started the hunt for a new media stand. Then one day, we ran across this junky dresser. Even with it's broken drawers, missing hardware and bad finish, we knew she had potential. 

I put Mr. DD right to work. Just kidding. He was super excited to work on this piece. Especially with his little helper. 

The body of the dresser and the salvageable drawers received a good sanding, while we came up with a plan to make the space work for us. In the end, we decided to remove the second drawer entirely, which made space for the media components. 

Two coats of primer, two coats of paint, and a layer of clear wax later - she's all ready to go. 
And finally, the TV is off the ground again. 
Now our family room, which is nothing more than a glorified basement playroom, that is desperately in need of a little TLC, is one step closer to feeling more complete. 

What a difference. Hope you had a great weekend!
