Nursery Furniture Makeover

I'm a big fan of using old furniture, even in a baby's room, opposed to furniture designed for a baby. This piece of furniture I absolutely love the details and legs, and I know will be used in my home forever. Even though it was a handy me down, I really love it. Its been painted white, yellow, and green.

This piece of furniture I found on the side of the road. I added pink damask paper to the back, and pink knobs. I realized while I was repainting it, that I don't really like the top part, with the old fashion rungs. And even though this room is quite large, I realize the height doesn't really work.

And now the after! This was the changing table but I decided to move things around a bit. I painted it grey, and spray painted the hardware yellow. I let the rust color come through.

And I took off the top shelf part of this piece, and added the changing table pad, and new cover.

This crate storage I got at my local thrift store for $15. It was originally that super light non wood color? Do you know which one I mean, like not white but not wood? (cricket cricket) Well anyway I spray painted it dark grey.

So what do you think?



Come back tomorrow for the final reveal! yay I'm excited!


  1. oooooh i love it! love the gray but i LOVE those bright yellow pulls against it- that is so awesome! i am so excited to see the reveal! :)

  2. It's great! Love it! Tell me something did you have to sand them first? I hate sanding!

  3. I am a big fan of sage green in general. Love both colors. Can't go wrong with white. The pink glass knobs are pretty and really change look of the dresser. Love that touch! Can't wait to see more.

  4. Oops! My bad. The dresser is not white but grey. I really like it! The combination pink and grey works well together.

  5. What fun changes! Love the pink and white pokadots ontop of the changing table!

  8. Ahh I love it! The gray is so chic but still soft and the pops of yellow and pink are adorable. Kennedy is a lucky girl!
