When Angie moved out and we started to put the babies room together, I started to have second thoughts on the dresser. Which is no surprise, I have the hardest time committing to anything lately. I am such an indecisive person, but add in pregnancy hormones and its nearly impossible to make any type of decision with any lasting commitment.
I went on the hunt for another dresser and Craigslist totally pulled through for me! I found the exact style I was looking for, in our price range, and the family selling it lived 5 minutes away! Talk about seriously lucking out.
I of course forgot to take any before pictures of the dresser in all of its polyurethane glory. Jed snapped these on his iPhone while he was working on it.
Jed was totally impressive and spent his entire Saturday sanding it down and then we stained it together that night. So in practically one afternoon Jed transformed it from a beat up old thing to the perfect dresser for little miss. Pretty great guy.
Dresser: $50 (Craigslist)
Stain: $4.50 (mini wax color special walnut via Lowes)
Stripper: on hand
Sanding supplies: on hand
As for the first dresser we ended up selling it the next weekend to my mother in law! It goes perfectly in her guest bedroom and made it way easier to part with knowing that she liked it so much!
