When I picked this dresser the two top drawers were beyond saving! The bottom drawer was still functional and the height was perfect for what I thought could be a perfect bench with a storage drawer......
This is what she looked like when I got her off the trailer. I removed her top, then dropped the wood from under where the top drawer was down to above the remaining bottom drawer (it was a perfect fit and required no extra wood or cuts!)
I added trim around the top to create a "rail", filled the nail holes and she was ready for her makeover.....
I painted it in Kristi Kuehl Pure Home Paints Derby and Bisque, lightly distressed and Matte Protective Finish. She lasted less than a week!

- Beautiful and love the pillows on it. Did you make those? Someday I think I will try to make a bench like yours. I also like the sign over the bench and did you do that too. I saw signs on a couple of things and was wondering if you have a shop where you sell those items? A job well done and I too like the colors.
