Gain More Storage Space Using An Old Dresser Wardrobe Cabinet For Your Vacuum And Cleaning Supplies

Storing Your Cleaning Supplies In An Old Free Standing Painted Dresser-Wardrobe In Your Bathroom

While poking around in the Powder Room of Korlates Fitness & Pilates in Avon, CT. I discovered a very handy dandy idea. Owner Kris, converted an old upright dresser wardrobe cabinet into a storage unit for his utilities and cleaning supplies for his studio.

Look At These Deep Drawers

Now while he was busy getting ready for our exercise session, I was sneaking a look behind the doors and drawers of this white painted dresser to see what he keeps inside.

And lo and behold, I found his vacuum in the larger compartment and paper towels and cleaning supplies in the drawers. Now that's a clever way to gain a closet!

Adding Charming And Artsy Drawer Knobs

I took a close shot of this dresser drawer to show you how charming a funky drawer knob can be when added to your dresser. You can find artsy door knobs online. by the way, notice how deep these drawers are....that is what you want to look for.

Where To Find Old Furniture?

You can pick up old dressers in a lot of affordable places such as used furniture stores, junk shops, thrift shops, flea markets and consignment stores. I have often seen these cabinets unpainted in their original wood, but what's a little white paint to complete your Cottage Chic look? And because you are using this dresser for bathroom storage you need not be too fussy about condition, especially if you are painting it.
