Dresser Project

Edit 2015-01-28: Please go here for detailed dimensions, cut list and material list.

This was built for a friend who commissioned a dresser.  Once again I found plans online, then modified them to suit what I wanted to build.  It is Patrick’s Beach Cottage Dresser from Ana-White.com.

The plan only calls for 12″ deep drawers.  This is really too narrow to use as an every-day dresser as it would not hold many clothes.  I modified it by doubling the depth and adding a 5th drawer.

The base coat is Antique Mahogany and the top coat is Vanilla Milkshake (both flat).  The piece was finished with Satin Minwax Polycrylic to give it a harder more durable surface and add a bit of shine.

  1. Love your dresser and would like to make one for my daughter. I found your blog by following a link on Ana White’s site. Do you have a materials list and a cut list? I would like to use deeper drawers and more drawers just as you did.

  2. What are the measurements for the dresser in the size you built? Do you think you will have the cut list soon? I had a dresser built for me but it was way too big so now I am going to attempt to build one myself. The dresser you build it just what I am looking for. Thank you.

    1. Nancy,
      I will send you a copy of the printout I used to build that has the dimensions I used (I think). I do not have this piece to verify that what is on the plan is what I actually built, so please verify that all dimensions make sense as you build.

  3. I would like a copy of your plans as well for this. This is exactly what I was going to do to Ana White’s plan. Thank you!

  4. I would absolutely love a copy of your plans. I love the modifications you made to the dresser. Would you be so kind and send me a copy?

  5. Like most I was looking at Ana White’s page and found your dresser. I would be very interested in looking at the plans if you are willing to send them. Thanks!

  6. Hi,

    I was just looking at Ana White’s website and noticed that you had posted an expanded version of the Patricks Beach Dresser. This would be a perfect addition to our dressing room and was hoping that you would be kind enough to share you plan/modifications with us. We’d greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you!

  7. I hope it’s not a bother but I would love the expanded plans if you would be so kind. I have 9 children and need all the space I can get my hands on! Your help is greatly appreciated!

  8. Great plans. I am trying to modify the sketchUp plans your provided and can’t seem to change the measurements. Can you help?
