Dresser bench...

Hi Everyone!  While I'm at the Apple Jacks fair today (I promise to have pictures to share from the fair on Monday) I thought I'd show you one of the items that will be for sale.....the other half of the dresser that I turned into a bench.
This is the top half of the dresser (I turned the other half into a bench for my Open House earlier this year).  I had to cut more off the bottom in order to make the height correct. 
 I primed it with grey primer on both the inside and outside and then painted it with Heirloom White spray paint.
 I sanded it to reveal some of the grey and the red.
 I addedd the center decorative portion from a Jenny Lind crib to finish it off.
 I love the star on the knobs, such a great detail!
I upholstered the seat in a greyish drop cloth.  I love how this turned out and I like it more than the first one.  It's the perfect bench for an entry way.  Hopefully someone at the fair thinks the same thing!  Thanks for stopping by.

  1. It looks great Holly and the star knobs are so cute. I hope the fair is going well ?!?

  2. I love cutting up furniture too! I can't even remember where I sold my two pieces like this....where is my brain these days?
    sure hope you had a great day at your sale!

  3. That's such a neat idea! I never think of cutting up furniture when I see it, but I'm going to remember this for sure! Love it!
