This began as a 3 drawer dresser my wife picked up at a consignment store. It was painted and ugly mustard color and was in pretty bad shape. I took it down to bare wood, added an extra drawer space on the bottom so it would fit over our radiator. I added some of the elements like the back to the top and bottom stretcher was a part of the mirror. My wife did the finish work.

That’s the fanciest radiator cover we’ve ever seen! What great recycling. Thanks for posting.

-- - Jei, Rockford IL - When in doubt, spray it with WD-40 and wrap it with duct tape. The details will attend to themselves.
