I am so excited about this project. It’s not very often that I get the chance to work on a piece of furniture that is going into a nursery.
But look what I was asked turn into a pretty changing table.
Before the dresser had been in my house for 30 minutes I grabbed some stripper.
Put on my gorgeous mask, safety, safety.
What is up? I never knew one of my eyes was bigger than the other. Oh, well.
Poured on the stripper and let it sit for a good long time.
Scrape, scrape, scrape.
Stained the top with Minwax’s Jacobean.
I painted the bottom of the dresser with a light coat of primer and a light coat of Valspar’s Antique White.
Fixed the wonky second drawer. And distressed the edges with a sanding block.
I finished it with a coat of Briwax.
The final touch was adding the clear drawer pulls. Doesn’t it give this changing table just a bit more femininity?
Just perfect for a little girl’s nursery, I guess I will have to wait a few more months to find out if she likes it.
But it will be waiting for her. They are picking it up this weekend.
