Tool Chest Dresser (Repurposed Hutch Bottom)

When I found out I was pregnant with my second child (first a boy) I was so excited to decorate a girlie nursery. Fast forward a year and I haven't finished the nursery of my second son. Since I could not do girlie - I paid honor to my holy land - Home Depot. What DIY lover doesn't love to browse the aisles of The Depot??
We had a cheap, particle board dresser/changing table that wasn't worth any effort. Instead I opted to repurpose the bottom of my husband's grandmother's old dining room hutch. There were large scratches across the top of the "dresser" portion.
I removed the hardware and painted it black. I filled the drill holes with wood filler. Then I decided it needed red to really make it obvious what I was going for.
I added pulls from something I stumbled on in the tile section of Home Depot. I also added castor wheels for the full effect as well as diamond plate tin sheets. See my blog for more details.
The top I will find another purpose for as well. But the bottom will house the baby's wardrobe.
I'll be doing a full room reveal soon. I've done tons of DIY for this nursery. Hopefully it's done before my son transitions to a bed :)
