Undressed Dresser

Don’t be so quick to pass by an old dresser missing half its drawers. Who says it was only meant to be a dresser anyway?  Maybe it is secretly yearning to be a bench.  A fabulous bench with storage built right in! 
After blogging for all this time, you would think that ideas like this would occur to me once in a while, but you’d be wrong!  From the always inspiring Catherine from Freddy and Petunia!
