    Today I was frustrated with an old dresser just taking up space in storage. I was also considering the need for more nesting boxes because we just recently purchased a couple dozen more egg-layer chicks (and 8 ducklings!) So while I was dragging the dresser out of the storage area, I recalled an article on pinterest about up cycling dressers into nesting boxes. Sure enough, this dresser was perfect for the task, so instead of a pile of scrap project wood or a small bonfire pile, we now have 5 more cute and useable nesting boxes and one less old dresser eating up space in my storage area!

    Sounds like a great use of an old dresser! :)
