I live in a small mobile home, so I didn't make the dresser as wide. I also used a little combo of the 2x4 look from the Rustic X Console (which I already made a modified version of) I liked the 2x4 look and I wanted the dresser a little sturdier because I was making it a little taller without a bottom shelf. It's 44" wide and 40" tall. I wanted a space where my dog could have her bed out of the way (you can already see her in her spot :) ) Because I didn't make it as wide I also thought 3 drawers to the top would be too busy, so I put two to the top and one large bottom drawer. It is already given me more room for clothes.
I have to estimate on skill level and time, because I do it here and there, but I probably finsihed this with in a week. I haven't been real good at keeping track of costs because I have bought wood here and there, but this may have been around a $100 more or less?
This was also my first project with drawers. The first was a toughie...but the other two went right in (???).
But I am proud of it and love it! Without Ana and her website I wouldn't have been able to do it....
I also have 4 other dogs who started out as fosters....so more space saving projects on my list....tons to do! So, please don't look at any mess, still lots of work in progress :)
Lovely build and excellent space saver too. Also, so kind to keep your furry buddies comfort in mind as well.!
Lovely build! Love the adaptations to fit your space AND make a wonderful place for your furry buddies!
Thank you for the comment Ann. Quite a few of my projects will have my babies in mind :)
I love the way you painted it. Looks great!
