I gave you all a peek at my guest room makeover yesterday and promised I would share all the details on my DIY Map Dresser, so here we go! I initially had a desk in the space, but realized a dresser was way more practical because the guest room also serves as off-season clothes storage.
Building a drawer dresser doesn’t necessarily take so much effort as you might think.
So, I partnered up with Brother to create a custom faux map drawer using my favorite organizational tool: A label maker! You all are going to go crazy for the P-touch Cube. It lets you customize your labels on your phone with a ton of fonts and layout options.
This white four-door dresser fit the space perfectly, so I used that as a base, then made each large drawer look like 3 thin map drawers by screwing on strips of wood, then adding knobs and labels. You may have seen the process unfold on Instagram, and I had a fail when I attempted to make a no power tool version with balsa wood.
