I started with this dresser. It was solid but in very rough shape.

I began by removing all the trim from the drawers.

I also pulled a part the frame of the dresser, removing the trim and reframing the top.

I then began cutting the strips and squares for the drawer faces. I used a track saw just to make it easier on me.

Then using the track saw again framed out the sides with a shaker style detail.

Now all it needed was finish and it’s ready. All the hardware for this project was provided by D. Lawless Hardware. You can find them online and on Facebook.
