I am such a lucky mother in law. I must have done something right with my own kids because they both made great choices of partners to share their lives with. My son, Baby Boy and his wife, Sweet Amanda are expecting their first child. More importantly, they are expecting our first grand baby, on both sides of the family, and first great grand baby on both as well. We are beyond excited.
Sweet Amanda asked me if we would find her a crib and dresser as our gift for the baby. I was so happy to be a part of the process. After sharing Pinterest ideas with her and checking out what she seemed to gravitate toward, it became clear that she was looking for an eclectic mix of furnishing and color.
She seemed to keep going back to this dresser, from Project Nursery.
The title of this post is June’s Purple, Teal and Mauve Striped Nursery.
I knew I needed to start looking for a long dresser and I was lucky enough to find this beauty at an estate sale for $40.00.
It was in a little rough shape after being loved by another little girl but the piece was solid wood and fit the bill for what we were on the lookout for.
The only real problem was the formica top. I researched and found out that Kilz makes a super sticky primer called Kilz Adhesion Bonding Primer. Our Home Depot doesn’t carry it, but they did order it for me.
It got primed then painted a beautiful purple called I Heart Potion
The hardware knobs got replaced with these crystal knobs, because, well a girl needs a little sparkle. The original handles were painted with Rustoleum gold spay paint.
It was a push to get the dresser done in time for the baby shower, but we made it. I cannot believe we will be meeting the sweet girl in less than a month.
Thank you for following along on our journey. We love hearing from you.
