This is a dresser I made for a friend out of scrap and found wood. I like the way I merged Mid Century with Rustic. I found the legs from an old chair in the trash. The knobs were my friends choice. I Know some people aren’t too keen on the way the knobs look. I think it turned out pretty well. I also have some build videos of other projects here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2mSVc3U6F-fOK5ktmbCaiA

I like the look of your dresser!
But the knobs are hard to see. Could you please add a closeup?

jerkylips, I just used an oak stain/poly mix. I wanted it a touch darker than natural, but still wanted the rustic feel.

It looks great. I’m starting a project & this is the final look I’m after. thanks!

Also, I love the design – great mix of MCM & rustic. Very cool. I may have to steal this idea!

I adore this rustic pallet wood look. Outstanding design. Never mind about pulls, they are OK.

Thanks a lot for the link!
So there is nothing wrong with the knobs. In my opinion, they fit very well to the dresser. Great work!

I love the dresser. I agree though that the knobs are a little out of place. Maybe in the future you can sneak in and swap them out for brushed stainless or black oxide coated ones :)
