Nursery Project 1: Dresser

I have been working on a few projects for the baby's room lately and this is one of my favorites! While my family was in town for Memorial Day, they helped us work on this one. We bought the dresser on KSL for $20, and then sanded, sanded, sanded, primed it, sanded, primed it, sanded, painted it white, sanded, and then painted 2 more coats. Finally, we added the knobs.

We're going to be using this dresser as a changing table, and the changing pad and diaper basket fit on top perfectly. I've heard lots of mixed feelings about changing tables. Lots of people say that you don't need one, but when you live in a smallish apartment, I figure it will be just as easy to take the baby into her room to change her than it would be to change her anywhere else. And it will be nice to have all of her changing stuff in one place.

The knobs are my favorite part! I got 4 of them at World Market and 4 of them at Hobby Lobby. (Apparently, I have a thing for funky knobs.)

I feel like because we just moved, and now I'm actually able to, I'm in turbo nesting mode, trying to get all sorts of projects finished before our little girl is born. I'll be blogging about the projects as I finish them, so get ready!

P.S. This is my third furniture painting project. Here are the others: my nightstand and our table.


  1. That turned out so cute! I love the mismatched knobs. And the white color. I guess that would be all of it :)

  2. i love it! so cute. and i love the fun knobs. can't wait to see your other projects!

  3. I've been wanting to change out knobs on my dressers forever and I think you've finally given me the nudge I need to DO IT.

    Also, I used a dresser as a changing table and LOVED it. It's a great space saver, and you're right- it's handy having everything in one place so if there's any... accidents... you have clean baby clothes at your fingertips.

  4. that is so cute! you did great corina!


  5. Love this! I've been looking for a dresser like that myself and now its not a just a vision in my head because you did it. So beautiful. Did it take a ton of sanding?

  6. Cute! You are so right about wanting to have all of her changing stuff in one place - I love having a changing table with drawers underneath! I also got by knobs from world market and hobby lobby - great deals!

  7. this is so cute! we did the same thing, had the dresser be the changing table, we loved it! now ellie's too squirmy (she tries to stand up) so we took it off, but weused it forever!! :)
