I had built the "Traditional Toddler Bed" for our first daughter a while back. Since then we have had our second daughter and a house of 3 girls (and not knowing how many more were coming) we needed another dresser. So i designed and built this dresser to match the toddler bed.
It was made from 2x4 studs, b grade pine plywood, b grade pine and wainscoting. Though it required extra sanding and finishing work it was well worth the savings.
Rustoleum Clear Coat Semi-Gloss (4 coats)
Gradually sand to 400 grit sandpaper before painting. In between coats use 800 grit sandpaper or higher to create a glassy smooth surface.
I used a Wagner Control Max HVLP Sprayer, which I had to thin the paint down before use. For the clear coat I simply purchased 3 aerosol cans. Always use chemical grade respirator when spraying finish!!
