7 Drawer Dresser Made From Pallets

This past winter, my family's farm had a big building project. There were a bunch of these pallets left over. The wood is in pretty decent condition, similar to weathered 1x4 furring strips, so I asked if I could have them for projects.
My Brother and Sister-in-law are having their first baby, a boy. She asked if I would make a dresser/changing table for the new baby. Her nursery colors are gray, orange and navy. I decided to make as much of the dresser from these pallets as I could, to reduce cost. So I came up with a 7 drawer dresser design. Full plans are posted at http://www.hertoolbelt.com/7-drawer-dresser-chevron-top/
I thought it would be fun to add a chevron pattern to the top. I added locking casters to the bottom instead of feet, boys love wheels right? Best decision ever, I may put everything on wheels!
I was able to build the entire outside of the dresser from the pine pallets. The drawers where made with plywood, and full extension drawer slides.
I stained the dresser weathered gray to go with the nursery colors.
This dresser will hold a lot of baby clothes!
