Anyone have a spare $4000 and change they could give me?

I don't know when I first saw this dresser, but I've loved it/had it saved in my "I'm too poor" folder/dreamed up ways to hack it/wanted it for a few years now.  It's from Kent and London, fancy English furniture makers, and I'm sure the detail and care that go into lovingly handcrafting make it worth every penny... But I'm never gonna be able to afford it.

I constantly have it in the back of mind and when I see a cheapo dresser from Ikea or something with a bunch of drawers, I have to stop and think, "How can I turn this into that killer alphabet dresser?  Cause I totally could do it!"

Having a dad who's got decades of carpentry experience and given me just enough know-how and tools to build a few shelves or frame out a bookshelf has made me a bit over confident with my woodworking skills.  It's dangerous/awesome/gets me in over my head.


  1. you are adorable. i remember posting a bookshelf that i loved and you were like "I CAN MAKE IT FOR YOU!" perhaps we should *block* (no pun intended but i like it!) out a weekend and make them both happen!! :)
