DIY 16 Drawer Dresser free plans

Sometimes more is better, more drawers that is! and this 16 drawer dresser fits the bill:

Yes there are 16 individual drawers in this dresser - how fun is that?

I originally made this dresser for my girls: hair supplies, make up, nail polish, basically all the small bits that clutter up their room but I'm thinking Mommy might just keep it for herself.  It's a great dresser that could be used anywhere: office supplies, crafting papers, sewing notions, socks and undies, linens, etc.  

I posted the step by step instructions including free plans over at Build Something here.  It's a relatively simple build with a carcass and a ton of boxes, nothing too complicated.

For the hardware I used D.Lawless milk bottle oil rubbed bronze knobs and small antique brass label holders.  I have yet to apply a real finish, right now it's unfinished lumber but still looks great.

  1. Looks perfect for my kids stacks of piano music! Thanks for sharing the plans!

  2. This is the coolest dresser ever!! It would make perfect craft room storage! Thank you for sharing the plans!

  3. Hellow,
    I will be building a new workshop soon and I have been looking for a set of plans of this kind of storage unit to store small parts (Nails, Screws, Bolts, Nuts...ETC).
    I'm really impressed with the detailed plans and look forward to building this.

  4. I really love this! I'm going to pin it for my husband. Won't he love that? ;-)
