7 drawer dresser on casters - built from pallet wood

My sister-in-law asked me to build a dresser/changing table for my baby nephew. The nursery colors are gray, orange and navy. The family farm just finished a big building project and had a lot of this shipping pallet wood left over, very similar to furring strips. I decided to try and build as much of the dresser from this free wood as I could to reduce the cost. It was more labor intensive sanding it, but the end product turned out great. I created a chevron pattern on the top. The 7 drawers are very roomy. Once I finished staining the dresser weathered gray, it looked a bit to blah. I decided to make it 2-toned gray with some light gray chalky finish paint. I originally used the casters instead of traditional feet because wheels are a boy thing, but it was so handy having the dresser on wheels everything might end up on wheels! I have free plans and a tutorial posted at http://www.hertoolbelt.com/7-drawer-dresser-chevron-top/
