Jack needs a dresser 

When Courtney and Justin got married, Justin brought with him a very ugly solid wood dresser. 

When we started planning the nursery, I knew this dresser would be perfect. 


Just a little paint and some imagination right? 

My plan it to create a short term changing station so I wanted to leave the top stained. I love painted items, but paint can scratch. No matter how good of a painter you are, there is still a very large chance of the top getting scarred up. We don’t want  that happening. 

The top was in pretty good shape but it had a few scratches and the color was weak brown. 

A little sandpaper and some stain and poof…….good as new.


Wash off the crud from the rest and prime. Always prime people. Just take the time and do it. Then you ever have to wonder. Just prime.

White is always a good choice. The shell became crisp clean and white.

The drawers were painted the same blue as the walls and the original hardware put back on. 




Coming soon: the changing table will be repurposed from  a throwaway freestanding changing table, the drawers will be lined with cute blue checked paper and sealed with a coat of modge podge. Cloth baskets will be stored inside the doors to hold the cutest of baby pj’s and other essentials.

There you have it. 

Jack has a dressser.
