We have had a few nice days here considering its winter.  So I am outside working.  I bought this dresser a few months ago, and I didn't know at the time that the leg was falling off, so I attempted to glue it.  After a few more weeks sitting in the shed, I got her out.  And the glue didn't hold well. So I tried again, and put some clamps on it.  But for some reason, I think the leg might have warped, because now I can't get both ends to fit. UGH!  So I grabbed my husband's tools (tape measure, straight edge and a circular saw!).  And I cut it in half! Here is the before...


Leg is glued again, and now it's painted and distressed.  The top was sanded down. And here is my COFFEE TABLE!  The drawer is functional as well.  Lot's of storage.  DONE!

I think it's needs some kind of embellishment on the front, it looks a little bland.
