how to turn a dresser into a miter saw stand

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.

I used some plans from my friends over at Shanty to Chic to build out a custom top to fit my saw and then painted it pink — adding new hardware and storage bowls.
