THE KINGDOM STARTETH

I bought this chest of drawers at a yard sale for CHEAP!!! It is just the right height for me to put a cushion on the top and use as a changing table for Tate.

BEFORE

AFTER

Sanded the top, slapped on some BIN primer, two coats of Benjamin Moore semi gloss white paint, and new knobs and handles. The knobs were something I got at a speciality store and paid more than I should have, but so worth it. It matches Tate's Pottery Barn bedding to a "T". Next I will be painting another piece of furniture (Hutch) to put in the room. I have to do the painting this weekend because it is getting cold out in the garage and I am afraid the paint will not adhere and my hands will freeze. I love the details of the dresser. Scalloped edges and squares.... Not bad for paying $35.00 at a yard sale!!!

Oh, man, I have been looking for a dresser like this for quite some time. Can't find one cheap enough. I guess I need to drag my butt out of bed on the weekends and go "garage sailing"! Nice find!

You did a great job with that! Meili won't have a nursery so I'm living vicariously through those of you that get to put one together-can't wait to see the finished product...with Tate in it, of course!
