Transform a chest of drawers to a small dresser.

The remaking of an old chest of drawers, to a small dresser.   I tried painting it brown but the color wasn’t just right. Transformation started when the top drawers would not slide smoothly. Prefect for any little girl’s room or under a window.

Remove top of chest of drawers.

After removing top and drawers, I placed it on my table saw.  And cut it just above the second from the bottom drawer.

 


I then re-attached the top of the dresser.  Placed a small thin trim to fill small gaps where my cutting was not perfect.  Added fresh cream paint and new knobs.
