So as I was perusing the site, practically drooling on my computer, I read the post about building a laundry basket dresser and immediately bookmarked the page because I knew some day I would have to make it.
On my birthday, MrH being the sweet man that he is, surprised me with a note that promised me a weekend of DIY-ing (is that a word?) Obviously I was super-duper excited and so last weekend we went shopping for the required materials.
We followed the directions all the way through and only made a little tweak in measurements since our laundry baskets were a little wider and longer than the ones Ana used. We also decided not to use the metal angles to hold up the baskets but some spare wood instead - you'll see in the pics below. Two days, two trips to the store and three paint coats later, our dresser was finished and I am so happy with the results. I got to use a circular saw too so YEAH!!

|we decided to use primer first to avoid the colour from seeping|
|we just had to put in the baskets to get a feel of what it would look like lol!|
|final resting spot - methinks it looks nice yes?|
I can't wait for the next thing we build this was so much fun!!!
