Hello all and Happy Monday!
If you remember, a few weeks ago, I posted this picture of a dresser converted in to a changing table:
I just loved the thought of having all of the drawers underneath to put things in and the baskets to hold everything you need for a new baby.. not to mention when you are my height 5'10"ish, a high dresser is great on the old back!
So... I confiscated my husband old dresser from his parents house and got to work. Here is a picture of the before:
|Minus a few drawers and the mirror on top.|
So, I found a soft flat off white paint on the clearance rack at Home Depot and thought that this dresser/changing table would look great painted. Here it is after being sanded, you can see all of the years of abuse the top took from my husband growing up:
After a good coat of Kilz and two coats of paint, it got better... I actually think that my husband was impressed with the finished product (I know I was).
I sanded the edges to give it a weathered look:
And sprayed the handles with an antique spray paint, so that they would match the baskets.
I think the changing table is now ready for the newest Nichols. She'll be here soon!
Did I mention that we are converting my husband's hunting room in to the baby's room? That explains the deer antler lamp in a baby girls room.
Now off to my next projects: changing pad covers (in pink of course), and a pressed wood armoire that will be painted the same color as the changing table.
Have a wonderful Monday!
Talk to you soon!
