Farmhouse Bedroom Set - The Dresser

14 Materials
15 Hours

This is a project that I just finished! It was a pretty advanced build, but I feel proud of the outcome! It's a bit of a detailed process, but here is the basic process:

Build the frame

Build the drawer cases

Assemble legs and feet

Set up the drawer divider

Add the top and trim

Assemble the drawers and then install them.

Add hardware and stain

I started of with building the frame. I used two pieces of 3/4 inch plywood to give me the rectangular shape.  

Assembling the drawer cases

Next we added the legs on the side and the dividers in the middle. After that we put the drawer slides in.

Tip. Make sure you your drawer slides sit far enough back that when you pull out the drawers you can’t see into the back of the dresser.

Lastly we made drawer boxes and installed them. 

All of the drawers set in place!

We then added in the hardware and finishing touches.

We finished it off with a Dark walnut stain and semi gloss sealant.

Here is the finished project, it came out beautiful! Feeling really proud!

    Did you add drawer sliders hardware on drawers?

      They aren't in the list of resources needed and that's a problem. Getting good sliders is not always easy. I've bought plenty of ones that needed kicking to the curb. Plus, good ones are pricey.
