My Daughter asked me to build a dresser and storage unit for my new (and first) Granddaughter Jemma. She picked out the style from pottery barn and picked out the hardware. The dresser and storage unit are made from Hard Maple and finished with ultra white paint to match the babies crib. I have always stained and finished my woodworking projects in the past so this is the first time to paint (sacrilege) a project. Two coats of primer, two top coats and two clear coats finished it out. I was not really satisfied with the first attempt at paininting but with the help of many of you LumberJocks I was at least able to get it to a condition I can live with. More practice spraying before the next painted project will be in order.

The last photo is the really impressive project that my Daughter and Son-in-law completed. My project pales in comparison!

Thanks for looking.

Very nice. Congrats on all aspects.

Awesome drawer set. Those handles are adorable. Lot of storage space – never enough.

I really like the dresser, and you definitely saved the best picture for last. Best wishes to your family at this magical time.

Have your say...
