My wife and I are expecting our first child, a baby girl, in September. I decided that I was going to make as much of the furniture as possible, and started with this dresser/changing table.

This is the first project I've made with drawers, and they were a bit of a challenge. Other than that building the dresser was straight forward. The drawer fronts are made from up-cycled deck boards and the knobs are from Anthropologie

Estimated Cost
The wood wasn't that expensive but the hardware (drawer pulls and slides) drove up the cost. In total probably around $300
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
ply wood and pine
Finish Used
oil-based white paint
red mahogany Varathane stain rubbed with black shoe polish
Recommended Skill Level
