Dresser made into a changing table

I’m so relieved and excited to have the dresser/changing table finished and delivered.

I’m apologizing first the photos are not the best, still using my iphone camera.
What started out as a paint and turn around quickly became a major overhaul which took weeks. This is the dresser before. Wasn’t crazy about the blue wood handles and the fact that the two lower drawers (sorry the top drawer and the bottom drawers in the photo are in the wrong slots)had one pull in the center of the drawer.
I removed the top rail on the dresser and reattached it around the front and sides to provide a stop for the changing pad.

LOTS of my favorite new go to glue.IMG_0626

I used Annie Sloan Old White over Louis Blue and clear wax. Only a bit of color was requested and I think just a hint of the blue worked well.


I painted the chrome inserts on the glass knobs, the chrome seemed harsh.

A little distressing and two coats of clear wax and wha-lah a changing table.

Here is a hint of what I’m working on next.

Stay tuned…..
