During the last few weeks, we have had SEVERAL projects going on & I seem to keep adding to the list!
When we were up north at my parents house, they sent us home with some furniture for the nursery. This little chest of drawers/armoire was ours when we were little.
I remember playing hide & go seek when we were small enough to fit in the small cabinet =) My parents had moved it to their garage & said if I wanted it, I could do whatever I wanted with it!
That said, we painted & distressed it to match our crib.
*First I cleaned the entire thing, vacuumed & wiped it out w/ a wet sponge
*Matt spray primed the drawers & dresser (it was SO fast)
I didn't go overboard on the distressing because I wanted it to have a clean finish on the top part. It really does match the crib perfectly!
*The finished product! We have a few more peices being done to match, but you will have to check those out later =) we are getting closer to having a functional nursery, but it probably won't be completely finished until after baby bean gets here. In the mean time, he will be sleeping in a bassinet in our room!
I loved folding & organizing all Greyson's little clothes & placing them in this piece of furniture. I have all of his little church outfits hanging in the cabinet & all of his shoes stacked in the bottom of it. Most things are also hanging in the closet, but I am so glad I will get to use this for our kids now & keep the memories of this little dresser in our home!
