Aspen's Nursery Update

We made a little progress on Aspen's nursery this weekend. A couple of weeks ago we were able to get an old dresser that was at my sister's house that was probably used by all of us at some point in our childhood. I don't have a great before picture but it was brown and just blah. In Everly's nursery we had a stainless steel workbench that we used as a changing table but that just wouldn't look right in Aspen's room so we decided to paint this dresser and use that as a changing table instead. We wanted this to be a big pop of color in the room so we decided to paint it coral. Justin sanded down the dresser and then primed it. He then sanded it after every layer of paint and gloss. He also spray painted the hardware a shiny gold. This past weekend he finished it and put it up in the room and I love it. It is girly without be overly baby-ish. We also did not have a dresser in Everly's nursery so it will be nice to have the extra storage. A couple of weeks ago I had also bought some gold dot decals from Walls Need Love. They were very affordable and shipped fast. They were also very easy to apply and kind of fun too. Everly thought it looked awesome when she woke up from her nap and saw it. Now Justin gets to work on sanding/painting my old childhood bunk bed so that we can transition Everly's toddler bed back into a crib for Aspen. He is going to be a furniture painting pro by the end of this!

The completed dresser next to a pouf I got on clearance at target. The colors for the room are coral, navy and gold and the wall opposite this dresser is painted a dark navy.
