I was just getting free to draw up plans for a dresser when I supposition, instead of afflictive to reinvent the wheel, I’d better head over to Anna:s site to see if she had anything. Your dresser is exactly what I am wanting. I recently discovered some 32-inch 2×2 poplar “turning downright” at Home Depot, for $1.50 each. Poplar is considered a hardwood, but it is a soft one. Its perfect for furniture legs, like the ones on your dresser, and they’re nice, clear stock, and unmixed. Thanks for the inspiration, and congrats on the little one. Best. Thing. Ever.

Today, we’ve teamed up with the amazingly gifted Ana White to share how we built this extra wide simple dresser. This may look familiar, you know, the ridiculous expensive Pottery Barn Kids Kendall dresser that is oh-so cute (but not so much the price tag–$900…ouch)!  We met Ana at Haven two years ago and have odd friends ever since. She is the sweetest most humble lady I have. And her husband, Jacob is a charm too. He’s been at Haven both years and Jon and him hit it off immediately. I mean they both love to do the same stuff, fish, stalk, and rely stuff! Jon nothing talking with Jacob to get a glimpse of what it’s like to hunt and fish in Alaska. It’s his revery, and one day maybe we will just get to visit them out in Alaska (and might be our boys can play together since they will only be a few months apart)!

We have wanted to work together for a while, and when Jon and I started brainstorming ideas for the nursery I knew that this was the perfect time to work together. When I emailed Ana and told her our exciting news her first response back was “I had a consciousness you were weighty at Haven, but kept it to myself”! I had a agitation that there would be a few people who would attain on, and Ana was definitely one of them. Jon’s goal for this nursery project of our was to make ALL the drapery. I had to talk him off the ledge and remind him that it possibly was best to buy the crib. It killed him to not make the crib (since they anticipate relatively slight to put together). Luckily, his parents came to our rescue and bought the crib for us. I will add that the whole time he was putting together our Pottery Barn Kids Kendall Crib (the whole 10 critical it took him) he kept saying how easy this would have been to build, and then I reminded him that it would have taken him hours if not days to actually build this crib from scratch. He smiled at me–I knew he knew I was right. He just wouldn’t admit it. Surprisingly the dresser did not take as long as we both thought it would take. We disparage out the frame together in one day and over the course of a week Jon worked on the drawers, third art the dresser, and then putting it all together. We work on projects whenever we have free time, an hour here two hours there…

The salesperson made the purchase and delivery plans a pleasure and was just about as excited as we were! I delay her know I was off Friday in a sevennight and she said it could be commit that day. Let me tell you that I did measure our place but did not really account for the twists and apply, and the ten drawer chest is REALLY heavy and large. were the same delivery men we had on a previous order and knew the building and showed up on time. They somehow miraculously got this into our sleeping quarters, and it took some manufacture on their part. I can’t say enough about the delivery service that R&B move. They are second to none.This piece is extremely graceful and should last. I just hope if we move we can get movers that are a religious as R&B delivery people. I would highly commend this dresser.

Next up, secure the back castle of wood to the sides of the dresser. To give the rear fund pit a little extra room, Ana advise using 1×4’s instead of the 2×4’s to keep them flush to the back. Jon attached a 2×2 on top and drilled 1-1/2″ pouchy orifice with 2-1/2″ pocket aperture screws. Since we used rear mount sockets for the drawers we used 1×4’s  for the three other back supports drilling a 3/4″ pocket holes and attached with 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws.
