My Chest is a Basket Case!

This ol' dresser had some seriously delapidated drawers...so why not ditch 'em and put plywood on the inside to make this a nouveau storage piece!  I show cases underneath, but I eventually put large woven baskets in their place.  It sold out of my shop, The Shabby Attic right away to a woman furnishing a family room.  I've done several since, but this was my first and my favorite.
