*2 Photos have been added to the bottom of this post because I've updated the dresser turned sideboard AGAIN.
For years this old dresser has sat either in our guest room or the 'junk' room - too ugly to use when we had better options. It was inherited from my husband's Uncle so we've been hesitant to get rid of it. Turns out that with a little paint & new knobs it makes a nice buffet for the dining room. The extra drawer space really comes in handy because our kitchen is teeny tiny.

FINAL UPDATE -
I decided that the black was too shiny for my tastes, so I sanded it down (whew!), mixed up my own custom paint for the top and drawer insets, and added Grandma's jewelry to some new knobs. Oh, and I added legs and the top piece (leftover from an entry way door surround).
This is what the top & drawer insets now look like -
