Christy from Confessions of a Serial DIYer shared this awesome blog with us!!
I’m sharing another makeover of a makeover, only this is a piece I’ve had as long as my 14 year old…his baby changing table! Then it got passed down to my younger son when he was born. After he no longer needed it as a changing table (and because I’m cheap), I decided that rather than buy him a big boy dresser, why not cut off the awkward hump to make it look more like a dresser? And so we did remove the awkward hump from a baby changing table!
I added a wood top and stained it to match his headboard, and that worked for a few more years. Then we decided to buy my son a new bed this Summer that had drawers built in underneath (this one…it’s awesome!), so we no longer needed this dresser.
I decided it needed freshening up and the stained top wasn’t really doing it for me so….I decided to go girly!
I love how it turned out! It’s probably a good thing I have boys, because I would have gone crazy in a little girl’s room. I thought it would be beautiful in a room with lots of white…white bedding…white draperies…The color I used is Soft Pink by Dixie Belle Paint.
Dixie Belle Paint in Soft Pink was used and the stripes are done in a soft white called Fluff. When they contacted me about trying their paint, I had this dresser in mind and requested a pink color. These sweet glass knobs were a lucky HomeGoods find. Every once in a while I find really beautiful knobs there. These were perfectly feminine for this girly piece.It would still make a perfect baby changing table, just need to add a changing pad to the top.
Of course it can also just be a dresser. The inside of the cabinet got a coat of pink as well, how fun!
And I found this whimsical fabric at JoAnn Fabrics for the inside of the drawers.
