Color Swatch Dresser

For months I've been wanting to complete a few DIY projects in Chuck's room and this weekend I finally got the chance.

We picked up a dresser awhile ago from a garage sale and I had ideas about painting it gray and pink. When I saw this on pinterest I thought it was a great idea and would look great with this dresser so we went to Bunnings on Saturday and picked out the paint. I sanded the entire thing down to bare wood and painted today. I'm so pleased with the result. It looks great in her room. (I've made a few other little things for her room and will post pictures of the before and after when the entire room is complete)

(I was too excited to start on the project and forgot to take a photo before sanding down one of the drawers) 

One of the drawers sanded down

(I also painted a few Ikea frames to go in her room (they're sitting on top of the dresser)) 

Aside from this project our weekend was very quiet. Still getting things done around the house. Chucky is crawling very well now and pulling herself up to stand. She's also gotten her second tooth. We think she might be trying to walk soon....oh dear.

I love this bonnet 


  1. I love the dresser- very nice job! But I really love the pictures with Brett and Charlie :-) I remember the dress and bonnet. Love you!

  2. Nice job on Chucky's room. The dresser looks great can't wait until I vist again, I will have to think of something to make for her room. We need to Skype next week I miss you. I love that bonnet. Give Chucky a huge hug and kiss for me. Love G'ma.
