At The Weekend Country Girl, Karen says that when she found this dresser on the roadside waiting for heavy trash day, it was in pretty bad shape. But it had good bones: solid wood and dovetailed drawers, so she convinced her husband to help her get it home.
What happened to this dresser next makes for a really amazing story. Karen and her husband actually cut the dresser apart and used the pieces to create a brand new piece of furniture that would work for their home. They turned that old dresser into a gorgeous mudroom storage bench. With plenty of storage, gorgeous lines, and painted pretty blue color, you’d never believe the new mudroom bench wasn’t a boutique find. Fantastic work, Karen!
