I was excited and honored when my brother and sister in law asked for my help with some furniture for the baby nursery. This is a room where they will spend a lot of time once this baby arrives so I wanted to make sure these pieces were refinished to stand the test of time.
I started with an old dresser they had that will now become a new dresser with a changing table on top. No sense in having two pieces of furniture when we can combine this into one. Thank goodness I have a handy brother in law because he built the top for the changing station and I just had to paint it to match. I decided to use my BB Frosch chalk powder to create chalk paint out of Dark Teal from Benjamin Moore. We don't know the sex of the baby yet and teal is a great accent color either way!
The chalk paint was great because I didn't have to sand anything down and it took 1.5 coats to cover. I finished it off with a clear wax to seal it off. Once the baby is finished with the changing table, we can take it off and still use it as a dresser.
Every nursery needs a good rocker and my sister in law had this one tucked away. It's solid wood and in great condition....all it needed was a little paint to brighten it up.
I used the same Dark Teal on this chair and it paired so nicely with the navy anchor curtains. We have two nephews already so I think everyone is betting this baby is a boy. But I am prepared to go purchase an obnoxious amount of pink if a little girl arrives!
This was such a fun project and I can't wait to see the little bambino enjoying his/her room very soon!!
