We found a dresser at a consignment shop for 60 dollars. All it took was a little white paint and some hammered gray spray paint for the handles and we had new dresser for our bedroom. Take a look.

Step 2. I removed the old painting and attached the wood to the back with woodglue and very small nails.
Step 3. I attached some old spoons that I had with some screws for handles

Step 1. I cut some 1x3's into 16 inch pieces and cut them at 45 degrees at the ends. I attached all 4 pieces together with a staple gun. The frames aren't holding a lot of weight so the staples will hold. I used about 5 on each side and hammer them in to make sure they are tight.
Step 2. The next step was cutting the Wainscoting. Just used a jigsaw to cut them to 16" X 16".
Step 3. I attached the wainscoting to the frame with wood glue.
Step 5. After all the cutting was done I sprayed everything with a satin white can of paint.
Step 6. I attached the frames to the back of the wainscoting with some wood glue.

The first step was to build a frame to hold the doors. I used some 1 X 3's to frame it out.
After the frame was built, I cut the cabinet doors to fit. I attached them and added a 1 X 6 on the top and a 1X 4 on the bottom.

Remember the entertainment center we turned into a wine cabinet? Well, we also made two other projects using the adjacent sides to the center cabinet.
For this project, we created a reading nook for our seven year old, Ava.
I wish we could take all the credit for Ava’s room, but she chose the color palette and fabric for this particular project.
Here’s the side shelf we had to work with.
She chose a fabric that matched the aqua and pink theme in her room perfectly. An extra bonus was the 60 % off sticker price from JoAnn Fabrics.
I worked with Jason to staple the batting and then the fabric to a piece of plywood for the bench. Tip: Use the tush test to help decide how much batting to use.
Alcohol Consumed: 2 Miller Lites (one for Jason, one for me)
Assistance: Yes, Ava!
