Crate & Barrel Dupe of Rove Dresser

THIS DRESSER SAVED ME $2000! I loved this Crate and Barrel Dresser but did not want to spend over $2K!

I found this dresser and 2 nightstands for only $50. It has a unique shape that resembles the inspiration dresser so I quickly snatched it up!

I chose to do this video with very limited speaking based on the very positive input I got from the last one I did. i.e. ASMR.

This ended up being hands down the most lengthy makeover I have even done but I think the final results were worth it! I was faced with some challenges that I was , in the end , able to overcome. I would never have taken this project on if I planned to sell it because I knew it was going to be very labor intensive.
