Boys' Room Dresser


As I've mentioned a time or two, we're in the midst of redoing our boys' room.  With baby number three on the way, our two little guys need to move into together so we can make room for our newest addition. I'm excited to post on all of the upcoming changes, and will try to do so as they happen.  We are still in the early stages of our room makeover, but starting to make some progress.

This weekend I found time to paint one of their new dressers.  We needed a taller dresser with more storage room and this beast proved to be the solution.


 

I was in LOVE with a piece I recently painted for a client, remember this dresser?



Well, I loved it so much I decided I had to recreate it for my boys room.  Everything about it will fit perfectly with their decor - I'm a huge fan of red and white and I love me some stripes!  I painted it in Annie Sloan's Old White and Emperor's Silk.  I then aged the top a bit by doing a quick white wash followed with some dark wax.  





Looks pretty similar, hey?!
I'm more than pleased with how it turned out and it should look nice with the wood paddle I recently painted for their room.


To be continued ..... !!

  1. Oooh! I love it! The shape of the dresser reminds me of one I saw at Goodwill last week. This makes me wish I would have bought it!
