Nursery Update, Before+After Dresser

Another update to my daughter’s Nursery. We inherited this dresser from my grandparents. I had a hard time deciding what to do with it since it was in such great shape. You can see from these before pictures how nice the finish was. I either wanted to paint it or stain it darker.

I ended up deciding to use if for my daughter which meant I would paint it grey to match her room.

I made my own chalk paint with a light grey color from Valspar, then added a white paint for details & distressing.

Once I finished painting I finished it with Annie Sloan Soft Wax in clear.

I found some cute shelf liner and used it to line the drawers.

The final thing I had to do was to add hardware. I wanted to add newer hardware in a silver finish. I purchased these from Target, the only problem was that the bottom 2 drawers had different spacing then the top drawer; and I really didn’t want to deal with drilling new holes and patching old ones.

So I pulled out the original hardware and spray painted them bronze.

Still not sure if I liked it, I also spray painted some of the original hardware white.

So what do you think? Should I use silver, bronze, or white?

Stay tuned for my follow up post where I reveal the dresser.
