As you can see in the picture I tipped it over on its side and took my hand held jig saw to it. I drew a line all the way around the three sides and cut it down leaving it a two drawer dresser. I then re-attached the top with some glue and screws, all ready to prime and paint.
I decided on using a old looking grayish blue paint I had and then added a Union Jack to the top.
So if ever you see a dresser that is missing a drawer this is one alternative you may consider.
