Dresser Re-do for Adams Nursery!

When I had Savanna we lived in a tiny 2 bedroom condo and There was only a tiny loft type space off of my master bedroom for her, so needless to say I didn't get to do the whole baby nursery nesting thing, so this time I was so excited that we had the space and I had the time to create a wonderful space for my little man! This was my first project for his room!

I was on a search for a long short dresser, and a friends mom just happened to have one in her garage that had been shoved in the back for the last 15 years, she said that if my husband could drag it out it was all mine!

I had no idea what it looked like, but I didn't care. I had a vision and I was determined!

And In all my excitement to start sanding, I forgot to take a "before" picture, at the time I was on blogging hiatus! So just imagine a whole dresser that looks like this drawer! :)

And then I sanded, sanded and sanded!

until it was soft and smooth beautiful naked wood!

Then I started Painting it a beautiful blue with red accent!
Dont mind the Nosy little dog, or the pile of laundry on top! This was when I was trying to fill this dresser!

This project Cost an estamated $40, for paint and sanding sheets. Not bad! But now that I have learned a few things about painting furniture my next piece will cost a lot less!
