Kendal Extra Wide Dresser

With another baby on the way in a few months, we decided to move our 2+ year old daughter across the hall into her first big girl room. I built big sister the Kendal Extra Wide Dresser, Traditional Wood Toddler Bed, Letter A Shelf and a Dollhouse Bookcase and matched the colors with her new comforter, lamps and princess canopy tent from the Land of Nod outlet.

While I have built drawers with other projects (with less than spectacular results), it took some time and trial and error, but this is the first project that I was able to install drawers with any sort of success in lining them up (kind of) and getting them to work properly. Of course, bookcase drawers in a child's room are succeptible to a lot of wear and tear, so hopefully, they will hold up on us. We definitely have been satisfied with the result and love how it turned out.
