Dresser Re-Vamp!

I have had this on my To-Do list for waaay too long... and I'm happy to finally check it off! I've had this dresser my whole life, and I love the shape of it as well as the deep drawers for storage. However, after 29 years in my possession, plus a lot of years of use before that, it was time for some sprucing up.

Before, with some new knobs I bought a while back at Anthropologie...
During...


(Sneak a picture of the sleeping babe in. He passed out after 'Baby Rhyme Time' this morning. I think he still has his little name tag on his sweater. )
 After!







Now I just need to go through all of his clothes and re-organize a bit. Even though he is in the smallest percentile, he's still going through clothes at a surprising rate. At his 10-month old check up last Friday he weighed in at 18lbs12oz. My doctor doesn't really discuss percentiles, but when I got home I immediately looked it up and found that he's in the 10th percentile for both height and weight. This cannot possibly equate to the amount of food he eats, as the kid is pretty much a bottomless pit!

I love the lines of the dresser. Such a nice piece to have had your whole life and get to pass on.

I am SO impressed with your dresser update! We're building a house next spring--and I've already got DIY projects like this on the brain :) I just need to find some great pieces like you! have a happy weekend! xoxo {av} | {long distance loving}
