I took an old change table dresser and painted it. I wanted to do something just for Baby T, because, well let's be honest, Baby T is the third boy and is going to be living in the land of hand me downs, so he needed something that was just his, which he got when I redid this dresser.
I was thinking of doing an ombre look for the dresser but then I didn't want to buy a lot of different paints so I went with two colours. A really dark blue for the drawers and door and then a light blue for the rest. It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun. Here are some pictures from the project.

It should have only been a day project, but I took a week to complete this project. More because I took 5 days off before working on the project against I ended up only doing two of the drawers the first day and the rest of the dresser the next weekend. The first two drawers were painted with a brush and the rest I used small rollers. You can't really tell the difference unless you look really closely. In the pictures because they are after the first coat you can tell the difference, but once the second coat was applied it was not noticeable unless you were looking for the imperfections.
