Boys Dresser Redo + Wyatt’s First Day of Pre-K

Hello everyone! It’s been a whirlwind of activity around here as we’ve acclimated to a new school year. Getting back into a strict schedule of early mornings, homework and rushing around makes for a slightly stressful adjustment period for everyone.

Amidst all the crazy, I worked on a dresser for the boys room. It was a leftover Refreshed D├ęcor piece that just happened to be the perfect size for their tiny room. 

I liked the sweet original pulls, so I decided to paint them along with the rest of the piece. I used some leftover ASCP Louis Blue and did a little distressing (I figure the boys can take care of any additional distressing!) followed by some clear and dark waxes. I had to add more dark wax than I originally intended due to some stubborn bleed-through, but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

Here’s the before:

I think it turned out pretty cute and fitting for two little boys.

Now, if I can just finish the rest of their room...

Yesterday was Wyatt’s first day of pre-K. He has Adrian’s old teacher and several friends in the class, so he’s very excited about school this year!
