Lots of nicks and scratches had to be filled in on this old piece of furniture requiring a large amount of wood filler.
Plus, all of bottoms of the drawers had to be re-attached to the sides.
After the structural details were completed and the piece was sanded smooth, the old dresser was painted blue and hand painted nursery drawer pulls that matched the colors in the ladybug baby bedding and ladybug nursery accessories were added.
The labels on the front were painted using chalkboard paint so they can be changed according to the contents of each drawer.

A nursery painted in bright colors is an easy project that will bring a splash of sunshine and fun into any kids' room.
Painting the dresser drawers in many different colors presents an opportunity to save money by using paint samples or to empty a few cans of paint leftover from other home improvement projects.
Simply remove the existing hardware and replace the knobs with ladybugs. This is the preferred route to take by many busy parents with no time to paint or spend hours sanding.
If you are into crafts and have paint and supplies on hand you might paint your own wooden knobs.
