DIY bench with storage

I was really impressed with a project my sister recently completed so I had to share!
She found this dresser for just $10 at a garage sale.  She liked the color and distressing "as is" so she didn't have to touch that (nice!).

The only change she made was to cut it down- what?!

That way it could be converted into a bench - with storage!  Genius!  You will notice from the pictures she moved the top two drawers down and simply covered the existing dresser top with some foam and fabric, stapled it in place, then reattached it to the dresser/bench!  Who doesn't love great looking storage solutions?!  Especially ones this cheap and easy to make!

My sister found this idea on Pinterest - Man I love that Site!  I know some of you haven't  signed up on Pinterest because you don't have a facebook account (and don't want a facebook account). I felt the same way and so I signed up using Twitter.  It was very easy to get a Twitter account and I have never been back to Twitter since.  You don't have to do anything on Twitter and they don't send me any junk so it was just an easy way for me to get on Pinterest.  I highly recommend it!
