I am so pleased with the way the dresser came out for Avery’s nursery. This is exactly what I had envisioned it to be. A huge shout out to my amazing step dad for sanding this puppy down so my mom and I could paint it! I must also say that chalk paint is amazing stuff! I ended up keeping the hardware and giving it a metallic spray paint to get it a fresh look. Replacing hardware can get really expensive and I am really happy with the way they turned out! Thank you to my mom for spraying those for me since I am not allowed to use spray paint right now!
This dresser had been in the shop at the farm for awhile, so it took some good wiping to get the inside clean. I really wanted the drawers to be painted on the inside, but the paint was just not soaking into the inside of the drawers like we wanted. Of course, we had already tried it, so I had some fixing to do! I went to my handy dandy pal Pinterest and started looking for ways to line the drawers.
I decided to do a Mod Podge lined drawer with fabric. I looked for paper and wrapping paper first, but decided with the amount that I needed, it was actually cheaper to do fabric. This project was super easy. All I did was measure the sides from the inside down the outside of the drawer and from the front of the inside of the drawer to the very edge of the back of the drawer. I am not going to post my measurements, because every dresser would be different. I had a total of 3 pieces of fabric cut for each drawer. Two for the sides and one for the bottom and back of the drawer.
Have I ever mentioned how much I love Mod Podge? It never does me wrong and it always keeps things together better than you would imagine! I am already planning my next Mod Podge project for the nursery, so check back soon!
