Any budget-friendly DIY dresser ideas for a boy’s room?

How to make sure a Dresser is sturdy for an active young boy?

To make sure the dresser is sturdy and safe for an active young boy, follow these steps during the makeover:

  1. Reinforce the frame: Tighten all the screws to eliminate wobbles and boost stability. Add metal brackets at joints and corners if needed.
  2. Secure to the wall: Use heavy-duty anti-tip brackets to anchor the dresser to the wall, preventing it from tipping over. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for best results.
  3. Check drawers: Make sure each drawer slides smoothly. Add stops inside tracks to prevent drawers from being pulled out too far. Sand down any splinters or rough edges. For a detailed guide on fixing drawer slides, here’s our post on old dresser drawers won’t slide to help!
