Before & After: Nursery Dresser From 80's Girl to Cool Boy

Before & After: Nursery Dresser From 80's Girl to Cool Boy

One of the most sustainable ways to decorate a kid's room is to use high quality hand-me-down furniture from friends and family. While this makes for an eco-nursery, it doesn't always jive with the vision design-minded parents have for their kids' rooms. This great dresser make over takes an 80s dresser from a little girl's room and makes it fit wonderfully into a soon-to-be born baby boy's room.

Using a wonderful glazing technique we've featured before on honey oak cabinetry, Jenny over at Anything Pretty has remade this tired dresser to fit wonderfully in her future son's room.

With a lot of sanding, two colors of glaze and a bunch of coats of poly, this dresser looks brand new. I love the way she paired the glazed wood with bright white fronts.
