Changing Table/Dresser Makeover
One of things Claire and I got super excited about was planning the nursery. One of my good friends, Kathy, was moving out and donated some furniture to me for my refurbishing addiction. Thanks Kathy! One of the pieces was a sturdy wood dresser that is the perfect height for a changing table.
Annie Sloan's Pure White chalk paint and sealed it with Annie Sloan's clear wax. The next step was the trickiest-- measuring and taping out the lines for the design on the drawer fronts. That took a lot of patience and the help of a patient husband, who politely pointed out when my lines weren't matching up right. When I was finally satisfied with the lines, I jumped into painting. I used my stash of various chalk paints and mixed my own pastel colors of pink, blue and turquoise. After painting a few coats of the colors, I painted a primer on the other lines that I was going to spray paint GOLD. Yay!
Double Wedding. And the pretty bird painting is by an Italian artist named Irene. You can purchase her original watercolors on etsy.
