Reuse and Redefine

Reusing and redefining has sort of been the mantra of Hardy House as much as possible. In keeping with that, Dave and I purchased an old antique dresser for about $175 at our local antique shop, Brick House Antique Center (see link). We plan to use it as our vanity in the downstairs bathroom at Hardy House.

If you want to make a vanity out of antique dresser, look for a dresser that can be easily modified beneath the top of the dresser. The dresser we bought was pretty simply made. We plan to just shorten the depth of the top drawers. If you can't do that, at least save the drawer fronts to give the appearance there are drawers there. The bottom drawers on our dresser will be used to store towels and toiletries.
