Hey friends! I am SO excited to share my latest build! This next one has been a long time coming. This has been where my son’s tv has been resting for the last few months…
I know… Pretty shanty, right?? 😉
I have been avoiding tackling a dresser for sometime, because I thought it might be too hard. Well I am happy to report that it did not kill me, and it really wasn’t too difficult at all! The best part?? His tv and clothes now have a new home! Here it is! Ana gave me a great set of easy plans to follow and you can see them HERE!
I will say that the Kreg Jig® is a MUST for this build. If you need another excuse to finally go and buy one, just check our last 10-15 furniture projects. You need one… I promise!
I will show you a few tips here, and you can get the full set of plans for my Pottery Barn Inspired Dresser HERE on Ana White’s site!
I used my Kreg Jig® on lots of parts!
The base looks like this after it is attached…
This is a picture of the top before I attached it to the dresser.
I used Gorilla Wood Glue on ALL of my joints! LOVE! It never fails, and it is our very favorite glue!
For this piece I was finally able to try out some PureBond Hardwood Plywood. I have heard lots about it, and it certainly lived up to it’s hype for me! I used 3/4″ birch from Home Depot and had the nice man at Home Depot cut it into 15 3/4″ strips as Ana calls for in the plans. This saved me lots of time, and made it much easier to carry home!
I will be sharing later a more specific tutorial on working with metal drawer slides, but Ash gives a few tips HERE on her Pottery Barn inspired coffee table!
Here it is all finished up and ready for a good coat of stain!
I used the same stain on this piece that I used on the other pieces I made for his room. This stain is the BOMB. It dries in less than an hour, and only requires 1 coat. As a mommy with lots to do, this makes me super happy!
For my hardware I matched what I used previously. These sash pulls can be found at Lowe’s for cheapo!
My hubby helped me move it into his room and I took a few more pictures for you guys!
Hope you LOVE it! I do! Sure beats the old clothes basket… just sayin!
I would love for you to share this and Pin it below!
You can also check out the other pieces I have made for his room!
Thanks so much for stopping by guys! Make sure to check Ana’s site for the full set of plans on this great DIY dresser!
