There was a dresser hiding in that stack of lumber, but it took me six months to find it.

The dresser is poplar/cherry. The poplar was painted with blue spruce milk paint. I learned a lot through this project and I ended up liking about 85% of the finished product. I hope I can build another dresser someday and put to task everything I learned from this one.

Love both Cherry and Maple on a milk paint frame. I usually go with a darker green too.

Awesome is you are making your own furniture and it quite nice to look at.

Thanks for sharing.

I think all 100% looks great!

-- Extra screws left over are just evidence I found a better way to put it together.

Have your say...
