Lately I’ve been on a Nursery Furniture kick. I’m loving the fact that we go above and beyond to make the nursery such a warm, cozy and personal environment for our new arriving family members. You know, sometimes the stuff you get at the store just won’t cut it. This week’s obsession is refinished nursery furniture. These are my favorites!
A refinished dresser by Helen Nichole Designs, I’m absolutely in love with this color.
Seriously, how lucky is this little stylish baby that has this gorgeous piece in her room? Unfortunately I couldn’t find the source for this, but it was too cute not to include.
Oooh I’ve been loving this pink blush, and look at this beauty with the classy gold pulls. Redone by Cuckoo4Design. Love.
Bookshelves. Made of drawers. Genius. Addison Meadows Lane details exactly how to get these little gems made too!
I mean if I’m including my favorite, I have to include my last few nursery projects as well, right!? Luci’s MCM Dresser.
And Harper’s Custom IKEA Dresser that I made for her sassy nursery.
There is just something wonderful about a nursery. Ahhhh, babies! Am I right?
When I saw this dresser at a garage sale, I’d felt like I won the lottery. I guess I’m a sucker for old beat up stuff. Please don’t hate me for painting this beauty, but I saw it and I had a vision.
The dresser wasn’t in the greatest shape and needed some love. I needed to refill some areas, and there was plenty of torn veneer, so it would have been quite a mission, not to mention pretty expensive, to restore it to the original look anyway. I love commas. ANYWAY…I was a little uncertain about using chalk paint on something mid century modern, but I was looking for a flat matte look and knew the ol’ Annie Sloan chalk paint would do the trick. Plus HEY! No Sanding, No Priming. I’m in!
After I cleaned and filled holes and any damaged areas with wood filler, I used Annie Sloan chalk paint in Old White using this step by step painting process. Next, I shined up the original drawer pulls, but decided they needed an extra umph! and painted them with Rustoleum Metallic spray paint in Pure Gold to match some super sleek square knobs I found for the top drawer. I’m in love with the final look.
A very close friend of mine purchased this piece for her little girl’s “A Woodland” themed nursery and it looked just perfect in there.
So tell me, would you do it? Do you think you could paint an oldie like this?
