First we looked on Pinterest and got some ideas on dressers to benches. We found a dresser that we thought would work and took all the drawers out.
Figure out which drawers you’re going to cut out and we used a circular saw to cut top off, it really is easier than you would think. We used the top as the bench seat just turned it over and used the nail gun.
We put in a few supports to make sure it stayed sturdy. For the back of the bench we used 1 x 4’s and again used the nail gun to attach. I then chalk painted and sealed with wax.

My name is Alice and I’m from southeast Ga, USA. I’ve been upcycling furniture for the last 8 months and love it! I along with 2 friends have a FB page called Inspired Junk we upcycle furniture, a lot of chalk painting as well as making custom benches out of headboards & foot boards that our clients own. We take heirloom/childhood beds that are gathering dust in the attic and make a beautiful and useful piece of furniture that can be appreciated by the whole family.
