Mom's Old Dresser Turned Into Bench.


We had this dresser forever distressed in white. Saw a post where they turned it into a cute bench. Popped off the top, dropped into the bottom for the seat.
After the top was dropped into the seat.
Added moulding.
Screwed the drawer fronts to the back for visual interest. Finished with paint, Annie Sloan wax and a cushion and pillow. Finished bench.

    I have a dresser almost identical to this one and would love to do the same. I don’t exactly understand how you dropped the top. Could you explain the steps for that part in a little more detail?

    thank you. Yours is absolutely gorgeous.
