Just over 9 years ago I built two dressers for the two older boys. I got the plans from WOOD magazine. I was asked by SWMBO to add beadboard to the sides and paint them blue. The boys have taken full advantage of the dressers. Not only did they store clothes in the drawers they could reach, but they packed their sentimental school work in the top drawer that was just out of reach. Much to their mother’s dismay their stickers were proudly displayed on the sides, and the top acted as storage for an occasional wad of gum. These dressers have served us well, and never complained.
Now the two younger boys are using them and SWMBO asked that I update the dressers. This time she wanted beadboard added to the fronts and paint them black. We moved them from the shop to their room tonight. As we were finishing the little guys gave me a hug and said “Thanks Dad, these are awesome!”
And that is why we do what we do, for that little word—“family”.
