Dresser Gets a Whole New Use–and Look!

Over at Two Wongs Make a Right, Rachel had been scouring the classifieds for an affordable combination dresser/changing table for the nursery.  Unfortunately, nothing had appeared that met her needs.  One day, a co-worker that was listening sympathetically offered up a dresser that she was trying to get rid of.

Rachel was beyond thrilled when the unwanted dresser turned out to be a lovely Mid Century Mod piece that was in great condition.  Rachel fixed it up for her future baby girl’s nursery by painting it ombre style in three shades of pink:  Valspar’s Brushed Rose, Salmon Bisque, and Snow Pa.  “We just bought a sample pot of each to keep it cheap,” Rachel explains.  She finished off the makeover by replacing the old knobs with pretty glass rose petal pulls from Hobby Lobby.  It’s so pretty!

  1. Do understand that you just took a $1,500 McCobb Planner dresser and turned it into a $300 Shabby Chic piece?

      Yes….this painted furniture craze will pass and everyone will be stripping again. Too bad.

    • I think the important thing to note here is that an unwanted dresser is now very much wanted and enjoyed by the family who owns it. All the projects on this site are created using items that were free, found, or repurposed. I completely understand if you don’t approve of the way a particular piece gets redone, but there’s no need to be insulting.

  2. I think it is so pretty and perfect for what it is for!

  3. please tell me that you at least kept the drawer pulls! i’ll happily take them off your hands, just please don’t trash them!
