Step 4: Put it all together

If you haven't, yet, measure out your accessories. We wanted our shelves to go in right underneath that rear reinforcement.

Installing the shelves for this will be super simple. We're using the 1"x3" as the shelf brackets. Figure out where you want them and screw them right into the dresser, on on each side of each shelf. 

Once you get the supports installed, slide the shelves in on top of them. Our shelves weren't cut so well, so I needed to encourage them a little (read, beat them in with the mallet). 

Because our were ...snug... we didn't bother to secure the shelves, but screwing them into the brackets is a good idea if slippage might be a problem.
