We've had a plastic storage dresser in the bathroom since we moved in. I even upgraded it once:
But it was still just a plastic dresser that belongs in a dorm room and I was ready to upgrade. I knew exactly what I wanted:
Hubby added an extra shelf (five instead of four) and changed the size so it would fit perfectly in my bathroom and this is what we ended up with:
I took pictures of it in my living room because dang, that bathroom is small and I could not get a good angle for photos. But it looks pretty cute with the mint green tiles.
I think we spent about $40 on wood and finishing materials. Not exactly sure because we've been slowly plugging away at this project and I'm bad at keeping track of receipts.
I wanted to give it that Restoration Hardware classy-but-weathered wood look and the pictures do not do it justice. It is perfect! Greyed old-looking wood with a dull sheen. *swoon* Get the staining tutorial HERE.
It's the perfect way to display some of my favorite yard sale storage pieces. That green suitcase? First thing I ever bought from a yard sale! Loved it then, love it still. And I think I payed $1 for it. Ha!
