Today, I am featuring a nursery piece. I knew all along I wanted a short chest of drawers dresser to act as my changing table and also just a statement piece in the room. I had an idea in my mind of the style and knew I was unlikely to find it in a store. So, we of course went to Craig’s List. After searching for a few weeks, I finally found one that wasn’t already claimed and drove immediately to get it. CraigsList is less popular in this area, so it takes longer to find a good find, and I thought this was pretty good at $90. The only hangup it was painted a hideous lavender flat paint color (in what looked like several coats).
Here is the full piece without drawers, it had actually taken weeks of work to get to this stage. The paint had several coats of lavender, then white or prime, under that part of it had red. So, Jake actually used an all natural paint melter– it wasn’t a stripper, just something that softened the paint, so you could sand and pull it off. Jake had to sand for weeks because of all of the crevices.
So, that’s my feature this Friday. Much more to show from the nursery. Do you have anything you’re working on?
