I am finished with Sara and Ali’s baby’s changing table! It will make its way home into its new nursery this weekend. Sara is due in 2 weeks so it is about to be used a ton! They have the changing pad that is placed on the top but I took some pics to share with you of how it looks without.
The changing table is a really nice one. Super strong with deep drawers and a cabinet for storage. It can be used when the child is older as a regular dresser. The table is about 8 years old, made of wood, with that slick finish that a lot of newer furniture has. I feel this is a great example of taking a newer piece and giving it some character with paint.
Here is the before (I had already taken the drawers out – sorry!)
I used Annie Sloan chalk paint in the color Paris Grey. Two coats on the body and three on the top and the drawer fronts. I then let it cure for a day before lightly sanding for a super smooth finish and distressing to allow the original white to pop through in places. I applied Annie Sloan clear wax, buffed it and added its original drawer pulls back on. Voila! Here it is now!
