dresser/console

Submitted by bdp514 on Tue, 06/11/2013 - 13:26

I modified the pottery barn inspired dresser to move the drawers to the bottom and the open shelf to the top so I could use this as a TV and game system console.   I used all construction grade SPF, not a usual habit of mine but it turned out well.  Wanted something that looked a bit rough around the edges.  Stained it with Varathane stain, using Early American and Kona.  The pic doesn't really do the drawers justice, the stain is a gradient with the Kona fading into the early american.  The gradient really doesn't show up in the pic.

The piece compliments the Haley bed I built from Ana's plans and stained in a similar fashion
