When my daughter was little, I bought an old, beat-up (but solidly built) dresser for $5 at an auction. I painted and stenciled it (having no clue what I was doing at the time), but she loved it. Fast forward several years: she still has that old dresser and asked me to re-paint it for her soon-to-born baby girl's nursery. #ReFab
It took a few coats of primer, homemade chalk paint and some MMS White Wax but I think it turned out darling...and perfectly pink!
