Last summer my friend bought a house and a number of pieces of furniture conveyed with the sale, which translated to a bunch of beat up furniture left in the basement for her to deal with. This particular chest of drawers had been used as a sawing board of some kind and had the scars to prove it. I asked if I could take it off of her hands and try to fix it up and she helped me load it up, more than happy to get it out of her house. I brought it home and cleaned it up as best I could and then started priming it for paint. I managed to get the drawers painted and then I found out I was pregnant, which meant I had to postpone my spray-painting fun for the time-being. Fast forward to this month: As a present for the baby, my friend, Barb, agreed to finish the project and have it ready to be used as a changing table and clothing storage. Here's how it turned out:
The overall color is petrol blue by Valspar and the original hardware is painted white. I then used a white paint pen to outline the incised decorative tracing on the drawer fronts and voila! Perfect, right? Now I have a place to put all of the baby's Fuzzi Bunz and clothing!
