Hi Rebecca. To screw the dressers together I just used 4 small screws - two on the top and two on the bottom. I removed the top drawers and screwed the sides together with short screws. Just make sure the screws do not stick out the other side or they will get in the way of the drawer. The bottom area is hollow (below the toe kick) so I screwed the dressers together down there as well. It's super easy!

Rebecca

Hi- LOVE this! When you are describing the base, you also said that you screwed the dressers together to keep the whole thing sturdy. ... What does this mean exactly? How did you attach the two dressers? Thank you, in advance, for your insight! I'm a beginner and this is just fabulous!

Best,
Rebeccca

Andi

Do you have any more details on the base you built?

What color are your walls in this room? It's the defect gray!

Dayanara - I actually rarely use a roller anymore. I can't seem to find a roller that doesn't leave a slight texture. I use a 2" angled brush and then brush one large section at a time (top, sides, drawer) and after the whole section has the color applied I go back over it with my brush dragging long, smooth sections from end to end. That seems to help even out the paint and get as smooth of finish as possible without a sprayer. I hope that helps!

Hi. Love this!! Did you use a roller or paint brush to paint this gorgeous piece?

Thanks!

Suzanne

Anna - Actually, you have to build a base if you want to install legs. The dressers themselves don't have anything to screw the legs onto - they're sort of hollow underneath.

Also, do you think I could just attach the legs without making a base for it? Thanks!

This looks amazing. I really wanted to do do something like this and I am glad I found your post. Thanks for sharing!
