KJBills of Instructables built this gorgeous dresser from reclaimed wood. His other projects are just as glorious and worth a visit.
First I found out about a guy in Half Moon Bay with a sort of reclaimed lumber yard. I went there, and stumbled upon a relatively rare wood called IPE. (EEPAY). It is a rock hard hardwood similar to teak and is a really impressive wood. I bought the whole stack for like 60 bucks.
I used a lot of it for a playhouse for my kids, but I had a bunch left…It took a bunch of planing and cutting, but I milled it down to usable planks.

Design*Sponge has my number today. I need a dresser, this is just my style too.
Today’s first before & after comes from Sarah of Trevi Vintage Design. After picking up a sad little white dresser at Goodwill and decided to save it from its chipped-paint and missing-knob existence.
