Repurposed Dresser to Bench

This $20 garage sale find was pretty beat up.
I started by (1) cutting the top off, (2)removing the first level of drawers and their wood supports (3) adding seat supports, and dropping the top of the dresser down to create the bench seat.
I added a back and sides made from the top and bottom drawer faces. A piece of decorative trim for the top. Chalk painted and distressed it black. Added a cushion and baskets for storage underneath.
This ugly duckling is now the center piece for my entryway and great storage for shoes, boots gloves and hats.
