I also have upcycled a dresser to a mudroom hutch. You can read more here: https://do-daddy.com/how-to-transform-old-dresser-into-hutch/
We took the top off a dresser. Put hinges on it and stabilized with chains at each end. Made all the drawers “fake” fronts that are nailed and glued. Now it’s a blanket chest that looks like a short dresser.
Just add a larger top on top. Would work great
