We saw this great idea to maximize the space and gain some much needed storage - A Built-in Dresser.
We started by cutting a hole into the wall - to see what was in there.
We quickly learned that there was No Insulation! No wonder the 2nd floor was always so much hotter! So we insulated the space and added plywood flooring. Then we framed the opening for support.
Then my dad built the drawers. He lined the outside of the box with cedar just in case there were any bugs lurking in the attic space.
Then we slid the drawer structure into the space, and it fit perfectly!
All that was left to do was 4 coats of paint! And here is the finished product.
The best part is now we have 3 more drawers of storage but it doesn't take away from the floor space!
