Before & After: Plain to Woodsy Dressers

After!

If it looks like a lot of work - well, it was! Meg was under a deadline to finish these so they could be hand delivered by her parents. All told, it took her 32 hours and 11 different paint colors - we're tired just thinking about it. They were a surprise for her nephew's (due-in-November) parents and we imagine they were thrilled. They were painted to coordinate with Skip Hop's TreeTop Friends bedding.

Below is a detail shot and you can see more on Meg's blog Never a Dull Day.
