Kids Dresser Ideas
I have been sick with migraines and now bronchitis for 3 weeks. Womp womp.
You know what lying around your house for 2 weeks does to a girl? It makes her realize she wants to change all of the things.
From kids rooms to the living room we have been doing some mega shuffling around here.
So far I have bought both of my little boys new beds, changed out their dressers, got rid of my 13 year old couch and love seat (can I get an AMEN!!!) and purchased new ones, and sold our bar stools on Facebook and bought new ones.
My husband is counting down the days until I feel better.
This sickness is getting expensive.
Seriously, the new furniture is my early Christmas present.
We moved this little night stand / dresser into my 3 year olds room. We still had a changing table as his dresser. Folks, he’s been potty trained for 6 months and I haven’t laid him on a changing table since he was around 8 months old.
Time to say sayonara.
It was previously painted in another paint line that I used to carry in my store.
I’m not throwing anyone under the bus by saying this but their wax was not durable in the least.
By the time we were finished with the dresser it looked like a small cat had made it his scratching tower.
I kept the makeover simple but documented the process so you can get the same look for yourself.
If you peek in the corner you can see the new big boy bed we built for Shepherd. Yes, he turned 3 in October and we are just now putting him in a regular bed.
He only crawled out of his crib once.
Why in the heck would I move him out of his perfectly capable baby jail called a crib?
The arrow pattern mimicked the accent wall that still exists in his bedroom. You can see his entire nursery here. It was even featured on The Huffington Post.
Using a True Applicator Sponge I applied two coats of Heirloom’s water based top coat so it will be super durable. After taking these photos I am noticing a few streaks so I will probably take some steel wool and sand the entire piece to give it a more professional finish.
The hardware just make this piece even more precious.
Don’t kid yourself. This brass armadillo is from my own personal brass animal collection. If I left it within arms reach of my boys they would soon whack each other over the head with it.
Am I the only one who drags their feet when it comes to transitioning their kids to the next steps in getting bigger? If it weren’t for my mother’s not so subtle hints at making me parent my kids to the appropriate age they might still be wearing onesies in college.
