I know this isn't a dresser but what a DIY make over!!! From Thirstlewoodfarms this yard stick stool is divine! You can achieve this look by wood gluing vintage rulers either a yard or metre long cut to size (hand cut jagged edges are fine and help to create a rustic look) across the the top of the stool to create a top then vanish to finish. This would also be great for a coffee table top.
