Painted Nursery Dresser

When making personal items for my baby's nursery, I knew that this dresser would be the perfect changing table. This dresser was previously in my husbands apartment and currently lived in our guest room. Instead of buying a dresser, we opted to give this one a new life.
Here is the dresser, slightly sanded.
After it was sanded, I primed it with a sponge roller and Zinsser 1.2.3 Primer.
I painted the dresser several coats of Behr Dark Cobalt Blue and I then spray painted the hardware Rust-Oleum Pewter Gray.
Here is the dresser placed in the nursery.
