Hello lovely Friends!! Today I’m sharing another makeover of a makeover, only this is a piece I’ve had as long as my 14 year old…his baby changing table!
It once looked like this:
Then it got passed down to my younger son when he was born. After he no longer needed it as a changing table (and because I’m cheap), I decided that rather than buy him a big boy dresser, why not cut off the awkward hump to make it look more like a dresser?
And so we did:
I’ve added a few affiliate links so you can find the products I use and love too.
I added a wood top and stained it to match his headboard, and that worked for a few more years. Then we decided to buy my son a new bed this Summer that had drawers built in underneath (this one…it’s awesome!), so we no longer needed this dresser.
I decided it needed freshening up and the stained top wasn’t really doing it for me so….
I decided to go girly!
I love how it turned out! It’s probably a good thing I have boys, because I would have gone crazy in a little girl’s room.
I thought it would be beautiful in a room with lot’s of white…white bedding…white draperies…
The stripes are done in a soft white called Fluff, also by Dixie Belle.
When they contacted me about trying their paint, I had this dresser in mind and requested a pink color. You may remember I tried their paint on a smaller piece a couple of weeks ago, a pretty little chest that I turned into a keepsake box:

I used a color called Driftwood. I love how smooth it goes on, and zero prep required other than a good wipe down.
As you can see I added stripes to that one too. FrogTape makes it so easy to add a striped pattern without pulling the paint back off when you remove it.
These sweet glass knobs were a lucky HomeGoods find:
Every once in a while I find really beautiful knobs there. These were perfectly feminine for this girly piece.
It would still make a perfect baby changing table, just need to add a changing pad to the top.
Of course it can also just be a dresser.
The inside of the cabinet got a coat of pink as well:
And I found this whimsical fabric at JoAnn Fabrics for the inside of the drawers:
My husband tried to throw away the drawer that went to the awkward hump we removed…nowadays he knows better!
See what I ended up doing with it HERE! (It’s a reeeeeeealy old post, but the idea is still cute. 🙂 )
Don’t Miss a Thing!
