I'm curious to know how much the 6 foot, 9 drawer dresser was when you bought it and also what it would retail at today? I have one almost identical to it that I still need to sand and refinish. I absolutely love them and seeing this one really makes me want to do mine and see it finished!

One thing that was also missed- the bottom needs to be weighted. Meaning the bottom part of the mat will measure more than the top of the mat. Not all sides will be equal. If all sides are equal and you stand back, it will look off. That's just the way the eye works. So it's best to add at least 1/4" (or more) extra to the bottom so that illusion doesn't happen. It was noticable in school if someone didn't weight the bottom. It helps to mark the back to know which end is the bottom too. Cutting your own mat board will save you lots. It's ridiculous how overpriced framing is. It's easy once you do it a couple times, and it feels good being able to do it and admire it after.
