I have been wanting a new dresser and night stands in for our bedroom for a while now, all of our bedroom furniture is dark and the old dresser was natural maple so it kind of stuck out a bit. I managed to make all of this out of material I had around the shop from previous jobs. It is made of maple stained espresso with three coats of lacquer.
