My daughter Katie, who is expecting, needed a dresser for the baby girl she is expecting in 2 months.
Being short on funds, she couldn't just go out and buy a new one. So I decided to paint up her old one from childhood. The colors she has chosen are a pale green and lilac. Pictured above are some of the drawers before I started to paint.
I bought two quarts of inexpensive paint and ended up giving each drawer 3 coats.
A pic of the top drawer with the new pulls. They are white and purple polka dot. They were about $3 each and I found them at Hobby Lobby.
And the finished look. I spray painted the pulls an antique white and added some protective gloss to help hold the paint.
The top is wood finished and we decided to leave it that way. All it needed was a really good cleaning and some more sticker removal.
Another view. Total cost, $14 for paint and $6 for pulls for a grand total of $20. We also found a sleigh crib on Craig's List for only $50. It is in great condition, made by Bassett and sells for $250.00 new. The crib is a pretty creamy white. I will have to get a pic of it and post it when we have it all set up.
Now I am busy working on some things for her baby shower. Have a great week everyone.
