I'm also in the middle of redoing a room in my mom's house, so we went to Ikea and saw this smaller dresser for $35 and thought it would work perfectly in there. But then, when I started redoing it, I thought it would work even more perfectly in my bedroom :) Not to worry, I got another larger one to redo for her bedroom.
To get this look, I put the outside of the dresser together first and then just painted it white.
Next was to finish out the drawers. I did a new technique that I'll show you next week on how to get this new wood looking old in just minutes. No sanding required this time...although I really do love my other technique also, but this one is a tad bit easier.
Next was getting the hardware on. To match the drawer pulls I bought, I stuck a slew of screws into some styrofoam and spray painted them.
