The Before and After. Lovely Dresser on its way to the dump!? I think not!

The Before and After. Lovely Dresser on its way to the dump!? I think not!

Well, this beauty sat here for a LONG time. Long long. Probably the longest piece sitting here yet .... I just had no clue what to do with it. No clue where the idea came from - because I don't own cats lol! But, after months, I saw piles of burlap, destroyed dresser and lots of knobs and paint .. and bam - it hit me - the drawers were no good - but looking at them sideways - they made a neat shelf! so I added the drawer to the top - used the piece of wood that held it in place on the frame as the inner shelf for it, used the holes from the old pulls to dangle some mice from, add some burlap curtains to hide that ugly litter box - and some air freshers hanging underneath .. the cats dont smell it, put it in a sunny window and voila - they are in love!
