Provincial with Potential

The first purchase I made for the nursery was furniture.  I decided I wanted a french provincial dresser for the space.  Luckily, I found a whole bedroom set (dresser, chest, bed frame, & mirror) on Craigslist for $100.  It wasn't in the best of shape:

I forgot to take a picture of the side of the dresser, which was falling apart, the drawers that didn't have guides, & it was impossible to capture how wobbly they were!

To transform these pieces, I had my husband use his nail gun to fix the dilapidated sides & drawer guides.  Then, I filled in the nicks & gauges with wood filler before sanding down & cleaning every nook & cranny.  I also removed the handles & spray painted them white.

Finally, it was time to paint.  I brushed on several coats of Olympic One's Pigtail Pink in a satin finish (from Lowes) and wiped on a couple of coats of satin poly to complete the look.

Here are their beauty shots:

I think they are looking pretty cute in the nursery!
