It's easy to find old dressers for sale at flea markets, yards sales, thrift stores, and consignment shops.Taller chests of drawers are usually available too.To do this project, paint the cabinet or vanity a solid color, add trim around the edges of the door fronts, then attach the plywood his-and-hers silhouettes with liquid bonding adhesive.Design by Brian Patrick Flynn The high-gloss, bright-pink finish makes this piece a showstopper.

Not only does the vintage sign provide a theme and color palette for the room, but its historic significance also makes it an exciting conversation piece.

Imagine a bright pink or bold blue piece in an otherwise understated room.

Or, if a soft, vintage look is more your style, opt for pale aqua or yellow with a shabby, timeworn finish.

Design by Brian Patrick Flynn An old door found in a junk pile was paired with a metal gate then brightened up with a mist of white spray paint.

The end result is a whimsical, one-of-a-kind headboard with enough substance to balance the king-sized bed.

Then I just pried off the quarter-round and the baseboard.
