Baby Dresser!



So... I was gonna go garage shopping on Saturday to see if I could find a dresser that I could redo for the baby's room instead of buying a brand new one... but my mom said she had an old one sitting in the garage... and I could do whatever I want with it... ( I needed to make sure I could do whatever I wanted cuz it was an old antique and I knew if it had any value... it would probably be gone by the time I was done with it... but some of the drawers needed repair and it was old and some of the hinges had fallen apart... and there were water stains so it wasn't worth anything anyway...

Anyhew... so I sanded everything down and fixed the doors... and took of the old hinges... then went to town painting it... The most expensive part was just the knobs... had to spend 20 bucks since there were 20 holes... i guess i shoulda puttied half the wholes up before I painted it and only used 10 knobs... but oh well.

I got the little sample paint cans at Lowes for like... 2 bucks each... anyhew... so now I have this super funky dresser for the baby room ;) What do you do ;)

Marcia: DO IT! ;) It's fun and then you get what you want instead of seraching all over trying to find what you want...

Audrey: Yes I just freehanded it... I looked up the fabric I think I'm gonna make the crib bedding out of... and just tried to copy it close enough ;)
