Good night, someone could help me with some interesting applications of this important theorem and also I could say how I draw a dense subset in the complete space used in the theorem. Thanks for your help

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The existence of a nowhere differentiable function. If you want to read it take a look at Munkres in chapter 49. It is a really fun excercise to show that $\mathbb{Q}$ is not a Baire space, whereas $\mathbb{R\backslash \mathbb{Q}}$ is.

I don't know if this is the type of result that you're looking for, but you use Baire category to show that a Banach space cannot have a countably-infinite Hamel basis {$e_i$}: the span of a given basis element is nowhere-dense in the Banach space, so that the union of the span of the countably-many $e_i$ is a countable union of nowhere-dense sets, so that it cannot span a complete metric (normed) space--a Banach space.
