Here’s how I transformed this dresser into a chic workspace for my miter saw — complete with bowl drawers (wait, you’ve never heard of those?! ?) and a chic notebook / magazine rack.
Check out the how-to video below and don’t forget to pin this post for later.
This project was part of a collaboration I did with The Home Depot to transform my garage space into a chic workshop. Check out the full reveal of my #GirlGarage on The Home Depot Blog.
MITER SAW DRESSER
Miter Saws are much easier to use on a stand than on the ground as it turns out, so I set out to make a stand. Most of the plans I found were boxy and functional, but I wanted something a little cuter for my #GirlGarage space.
I had an old dresser I snagged from the thrift store without a vision, so I set out to transform it into a miter saw stand. I detached the legs & added caster wheels.

- Cut off or detach the legs of your dresser, attach caster wheels on all four corners and two in the middle if your dresser is long
- optional: Cut down a piece of plywood to fit on the top and frame out with trim
- Build the top including back fence and supports to fit the dimensions of your saw
- Attach your saw to the top and secure in place
- Lightly sand and paint the dresser in color of choice
- Replace hardware
I added a Magazine rack to the side of my dresser to store notebooks & magazines. You can follow this tutorial if you want to add one too!
