An antique oak sideboard offers a unique storage solution for a living room. With a lot of drawers, you can save away the clutter, and the top can be used for decorative purposes or even hold a television set. With a few reinforcements and modifications to protect both the finish and the integrity of the work, an antique vanity can serve a completely new purpose in the living room.
Use the dresser as a television stand. Check the solidity of the upper part of the antique oak sideboard. If your TV weighs more than 10 pounds, you may need to reinforce the piece to prevent it from breaking. This can be achieved by screwing in the metal supports under the top of the chest of drawers. These devices must extend from side to side, horizontally, to provide a hard surface. In addition, either a cloth or a piece of wood dyed or painted to match the dresser should be placed on top. This will prevent the TV or any other item from scratching or marring the surface of the dresser. DVDs, game systems and remote controls can be stored inside the drawers to keep them out of the way.
