DIY Dresser Build

I made my own dresser!! I was struggling to find a dresser that would fit everything we needed to fit and was within our budget so I decided to just build one myself.

I started by using pocket holes and 2 x 2 to create the two side panels. I then created cross pieces to connect the two side panels together to make the frame. I added a little shelf underneath the top that will be a secret drawer at the end. I then stained the entire thing with a custom stain. Using Miniwax in Rustic Beige and Varathane in Summer Oak using 2 to 1 ratio ( Oak to Rustic) . For the the drawer boxes I decided to mount the drawer slides to the bottom of the plywood boxes. I then attached the drawer pulls to finish it off. I am so happy with how it turned out.
