Pottery Barn Inspired Dresser

I drew up the plan and built it with my sister. The drawers are fake, all of them are swing doors. Even though it's not perfect, I think it turned out great given that we built it in my sister's small city apartment.

This is really, really cute! We just sold our dressers so I could make us new ones while I have time this summer. I might just build this one =)

Thank you! And sorry, I doodled the plan on a piece of paper and didn't get to do it properly in google sketch :p I aso wanted to do the drawers, but the last time I made drawers it was a lot of work, and between the budget and lack of space/tools, a faux drawer face was an easier option. I would love to build this again with proper tools, and when I do, I will make sure to upload the plan! Thanks again!
