Restoration Harware-inspired Trunk Dresser

One of my absolute FAVOURITE pieces at the Market right now i this 3-drawer dresser I restored using brown burlap, old louvre door pieces, a leather belt and new hardware pieces.  I also created feet for this dresser using fence-post toppers from the hardware store.  

My inspiration was the line of 'trunk' furniture available at Restoration Hardware, like this small dresser: 

But at the Restoration Hardware price of $3,095 (because that $95 will really make or break the purchase, I'm sure) there's no way this is practical!

The materials for my trunk (including the $5 I spent on the dresser itself at a yard sale a few weeks ago), cost about $60, the most expensive being the new burlap I purchased for 50% off at Fabricland, with the runner up being the new dresser feet.

The dresser is now available at the Market for $275 - it was a labour of love to get it looking this good!!
