I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on my furniture, and when I came across an antique dresser a friend was giving away for free, I jumped at the chance to have it!  Once I got it home, I quickly realized it wasn’t stable enough to use as a dresser, and no matter how hard we tried to fix it, it just wasn’t strong enough. The thought of throwing it away made me sick.  I thought, surely, I could figure out some way to save it.

I had an idea!  What if I just used the drawers?  What if they could be used to hold pillows, or magazines, OR a dog?

My first drawer was a hit!
