About This Project


Again I'm sorry I have no plans, but what I do have is a great instructional video. Drawer slides are such a pain to install without the right tools. I'm sure you can find great dresser plans but the kicker is how you install the drawers. These inexpensive drawer slide mounting tools might save you from going insane. Check them out.

You make something that seems scary look doable and WORTH doing!

Can you tell us more about how you finished it? I definitely get the beachy vibe from it too!

the finish is very easy to do. first you paint the whole piece black. then you simply paint it again whatever color you want. after that you sand it lightly until the black shows through. easy stuff

Glad you shared...I always want to do this type of finish but didn't know how. Sounds easy!

I like the finish too. I want to do a pink undertone, and white dresser, for a toddlers room. I think I will. Hot pink underneath, and bright white on top. Oh yes :) Thanks for the inspiration.

Hey Patrick... the finish sounds soooo easy and comes with a great look. Did you put any kind of poly or top coat on it? If you didn't, is it easy to clean and has it held up so far? Looks great and I'm getting ready to try it on a bed so I thought I'd check on that bit. Thanks!

I didn't use a top coat on this dresser. So far no problems but I've been putting clear coats on all the new stuff that goes through the shop. It's just all around better I think.

Beautiful piece Patrick. Can you remember the actual top color of this piece? My wife loves the whole look and wants it the same color and all. Thank you
