I probably run across this style dresser at least monthly! Kicking Ass Crafting: Refinishing Furniture - I love the idea of painting the top the black color - gives it that slate countertop sort of look.
If we ever get a dog.Pet station made from a small dresser - Food is kept in top with scoop. Drawers hold all pet supplies, leash, collar, sprays, etc.top can be where cat dishes are kept so the dog doesn't eat his food
The Quirky Cottage took an old discarded dresser & transformed into a gorgeous bench with storage drawers and a built in side table. Refinished in General Finishes Linen Milk Paint & Antique Walnut Gel Stain. Love this idea
