So I needed to do one of two things. I could replace it or re-purpose it. Well, re-purposing is a lot cheaper and I love having things in my home that I can say, "I did that!" So what did I do?
We really needed to have a console table in our Master Bedroom. Something that could house our components and give us additional storage. I wanted an open shelf on top and 4 drawers below. Problem - two of my bottom drawers were broken and my top drawers were smaller than the bottom drawers. With two drawer tracks broken, I knew what to do.
Now to make the top shelf.
Then you need to carefully measure the size of your soon to be shelf. Note - you can't make one large self because you won't be able to get it in without taking the dresser apart. So we went to Home Depot and had a piece of MDF cut down to size. We choose MDF because it can withstand the weight and the heat of the components.
Warning - MDF soaks up stain like crazy, so make sure you put on light coats so you won't waste your stain.
Then we took out the drawers so that we could fit the new shelf in. We got them in place...and they were PERFECT! We put the drawers back in, and voila...
Now we just have to wait until Christmas for our new tv. Bummer!
