Making this is not quite as easy as it appears. Unless you,
A) Have a old dresser lying around
B) Feel like seeking out the right one for the job.
But, then either way afterwards you will have a frame to dispose of...
My solution, get just the drawers.
I went to our local ReBuilding Center. If you live in Portland, OR then the ReBuilding Center is the perfect place to get the drawers. I payed between 2 and 5 dollars per drawer. Another place to get drawers is Habitat for Humanity ReStore. There is a store in almost every state. The only thing to make sure of is that your drawers are somewhat the same size.
- After you get them home you need to decide whether they should be painted and/or wallpapered. I chose not to paint mine and just wallpapered the insides. After cutting the paper to fit, spray adhesive the paper and adhere to the drawers.
- Decide how you want the drawers arranged: vertical or horizontal and in what order.
- Attach them to each other. Making sure that the drawers are level along the way. Attach each drawer to the ones around it.
- Lastly, attach the top drawers to the wall. If you have more than two across then attaching the end two is just fine. For added stability use a stud finder (I checked and they won't help you find your boyfriend or husband...I know, lame joke) to locate the studs in the wall and drill screws into them.
I am sure that you could come up with another way to make it work for you.
How would you build yours? Feel free to ask any questions too :)
