How to turn an old dresser into bench useful for the end of the bed, entryway or mudroom.
I found this old dresser by the curb. It had one drawer, and 2 drawer fronts. The top to it had already been removed. I used that for a window seat for the kittos.
I cut out the top 2 drawer areas. I used the 2 drawer fronts to make the back, in order to make it cohesive. I then added some trim/molding to the top of the sides.
I had a piece of foam that I had gotten from a friend, this made a nice soft place to sit. A nice elderly couple bought this. They put it at the end of their bed, because the Mrs. was unable to sit on the bed to put on her shoes and socks.If you LOVE a good repurpose, check out my door into a headboard, a nightstand into a child’s desk, or a coffee pot into a lamp.Want to see more benches made from repurposed items?
