As someone who has gotten virtually all of my vintage bureaus either at yard sales or on the curb, I love this photo of an antique dresser missing a drawer put to good use.
I've seen lots of interesting bureaus on curbs that are missing a drawer, and I usually don't consider taking them. But this one looks great — some creative person just put a board down and used the new drawer-turned-shelf for towels. I could also see using it in a bathroom for toilet paper, or for linens. You could even slide in two baskets for make-up or lingerie!
