Chelsey found this old card catalogue in the dumpster. She could see how much stripping and sanding work there was to do, so she kept putting off the project. Now that we've seen the results, we can't believe she waited so long.

From Chelsey:

There were layers of chipping black paint over high gloss stained oak and missing drawer pulls. I scraped, sanded, and added legs. Then I stained the whole thing blue and painted the insides of the drawers a very pale blue grey and added some aqua accents. The entire project cost about $20 dollars and it's the first addition in the process of converting my office/studio into a nursery.

Thank you Chelsey!
