I had been looking for a TV stand for my apartment. I was using a bookshelf that was at an awkward height and was (still is!) on its last leg of life. I searched for one everywhere I went - Target, Ikea, Marshalls.....but they were all SO expensive. Okay, they weren't that expensive, but I am cheap. Everything that I liked was out of my price range and everything in my price range looked cheap. So I delayed and eventually stopped looking.

Paint/bonding agent/hemp oil/supplies: $65.00
I recognize that this seems like a lot (mostly for the hardware), however, if I were to buy this dresser in its current state (from Pottery Barn, Etsy, or a smaller retailer) it would easily cost me between $500 and $1,500. My version is a bargain! Plus I was able to customize it to exactly what I wanted. I don't regret any part of this project. This is a piece that I will be proud to show off and keep in my home for many years to come.
What do you think?
