Baby Girl's Dresser


I found this darling little dresser on KSL Classifieds and knew it would be perfect for my baby girl's room. It is so dang cute and I love the design of it - but it needed a lot of love.


Check out these legs - Can you say "darling!!"


I wasn't too in love with the top - but it was workable.


So I got busy and refinished it.
At first I wanted it espresso to match our crib -
but after I stripped who knows how many layers of paint off -
and sanded for hours and hours -

I realized that there was no way I could stain it. sad.
I finally gave in, bought some MDF for the smooth top and sprayed the whole thing an antique white -

and I love it!


(This dresser does come with a mirror - but my husband thinks it will fall off and smash our darling girl so he refuses to let me put it up - but the mirror is really yucky so I would need to buy a new one and I don't feel like messing with it right now.)

Stay tuned ... more of her room to come!

I wish you lived closer so I could hang out with you and be inspired by all your creativity! My answer when I need a dresser is make a run to Ikea, lol
