Refurbished Baby Dresser

Little Giada’s dresser is done!

Annie picked out such a pretty color – Martha Stewart’s Bedford Grey.  It’s an interesting color – not quite gray, not quite beige, not quite brown.  It’s a perfect color against the walls.  I was going to use Annie Sloan’s Paris Grey, but when I put a sample up against the wall it looked like a bluish/periwinkle color.  Ugh.  So Bedford Grey it was…

The dresser belonged to Annie’s parents.
It is made out of pine.
Lots of dents and holes to fill!

Lots of distressing.
I applied a little bit of gold metallic paint over the primer (before I added the Bedford Grey).
You can see it peeking through a bit, which is exactly what I wanted.

Love the knobs and pulls that Annie chose from The Door Stop on Etsy.

Annie loves it.
Which makes me VERY HAPPY.
