Bedroom storage: DIY loft-style dresser
Looking for a modern alternative to a dresser? This loft-style dresser is both stylish and easy to make yourself. Here’s how.
You will need: Plywood base, frameless mirror and clips, plywood shelves, pine dowels, drill, Resene roller and tray. Resene paint for the plywood base: we used 1 litre of Resene SpaceCote Flat tinted to Resene Alabaster, Resene testpots in your choice of colours: we used Resene Adrenalin, Resene Casablanca and Resene Guggenheim.
The dresser was measured to fit the space it will live in. The staff at your local home improvement store can help with measurements and cut the wood and dowels to suit. They will also recommend the correct drill bits to use for making the dowel holes and attaching the mirror clips.
Top tip: Try Resene Colorwood Whitewash or Resene Greywash for a soft weather timber look that will allow the wood grain to show through.
