Apparently, I can’t seem to follow directions. My brother-in-law Donny wanted me to build him a dresser and he gave me specific guidelines and dimensions. And I was all, “heck yeah! Let’s do this!”
These were his requests:
– no more than 42″ high
– 3 small drawers across the top
– 6 large drawers, in 2 columns, underneath
And I came back with these plans.
Yeah. I knowwwww.
In my defense, I was fully engrossed in the new House of Cards season, so I wasn’t really paying attention to what I was sketching up. I mean, who can blame me, with Claire Underwood and her ruthless perfection all up in my face?
So back to the drawing board I went and came back with this:
I can feel you judging me. Yes, I am fully aware that I’m moving away from the mark. My husband says it’s because I was born with no sense of direction.
Wow, that sounded harsher than I intended.
Anyway, I have no plans to actually build this dresser, but when I asked you, my Facebook and Instagram friends, if you’d like to have these plans available, I received an overwhelming “yes we need those plans!” response. So here you go! I must warn you though, because I haven’t built this piece myself, I can only hope the plans are correct. I double- and triple-checked everything, but until you physically carry out a plan, you can never be 100% sure. That being said, if you build this, I’d recommend you measure and cut as you go, as opposed to cutting all the pieces beforehand and then assembling. And please let me know if I need to make any revisions or modifications. Oh, and definitely send pictures. I will love you forever.
