Made a built-in dresser for my daughters room. Just a big plywood box leveled on the ground and screwed into the wall with drawers. Used slides and put some painted drawer fronts on it. Made the gray counter out of 3/4” baltic birch plywood. Attached a lip on the front to make it look chunkier like it was as thick as normal kitchen counters and then painted it gray. Put a TON of poly on top and then wet-sanded it with 1000 grit until smooth, then polished with rubbing compound and then polishing compound with my orbital sander. Nothing fancy.
