Re: Faux Game Console Drawers!

That's incredible, @DanaR. I trust your child is absolutely thrilled with their new gaming console drawers. 

 

Many thanks for taking the time to walk us through your project. I'm sure many of our members will be considering how they too could make something just as impressive for their child.

 

Great work.

Re: Faux Game Console Drawers!

Hi @DanaR 

 

This is SO COOL! What a creative upcycle you have made for your child!

 

I really like your addition of the touch light so they can find the dresser easily at night or really early. 

 

Thank you for sharing this great project.

 

Katie
