Dresser Re-Purposed to Canning Cabinet-
We bought this dresser (left the drawers behind) at a local thrift warehouse last week for $6.00. After reading this Build a Canning Cupboard recently Dave and I thought about doing the same. With our more limited woodworking skills and tools, we decided to keep an eye out for something else. When I saw this dresser (some of the drawers were out) I could see it was pretty heavily built. It has nice, solid shelves and is sturdy. I was able to find a 1 qt. jar in the warehouse to check the shelf height (good idea) and it fit great! It was covered with beat up, cheap, plastic wood-look crap.
Three coats of antique white satin spray later, it looked nice! It fits perfect in our spare bedroom on the wall opposite our pantry closet. I have room on the bottom for extra jars, and home dehydrated veggies/peppers as well. ..
I also found the 50 cent basket and am using it on top for the extra lids, rings and canning tools-
I don't mind the little bit of paint overspray on the shelves. I like them unpainted...
