My wife’s grandparents moved into an assisted living facility, which was really just a small two-bedroom apartment. They had been living in a typical bungalow on the south side of Chicago for 60 years. They did not have too much in the way of furniture, as they were always saving their money.
I made this dresser for the grandmother, her room is really small and she did not have anything to store her clothes in. This dresser is just a little over 2’ at the base, and has full extension drawer slides. Made from 1/2” birch plywood with pine face, base and top. Finished with a cherry water based stain and 5 coats of a wipe on poly. The drawer pulls were picked up at Menards.
It fits the room and her clothes perfectly, it might be the first piece of new furniture she had received in decades.
Measured drawing of the project is located here.
