Painted Dressers

In mentally preparing to take on the nursery-to-toddler room project, I took a long hard look (maybe a few of them) at Breckin's room and decided what I would be keeping and what I would be moving out. I have two of these dressers that I got for free 6 or 7 years ago from one of my husband's friends looking to free up some of his storage space:

Being 22, pregnant with my first child and pinching every penny, I jumped on the offer. I had known I was going to do my baby's room in a beach-y surfer theme and I thought the bamboo-esque details of the dressers would fit the theme just right. But alas, my style has grown and matured, and I'm ready to be rid of them. Tanner's was actually moved to our storage unit when we gave him our bedroom set, but Breckin still has the other in his room.

Being a handy-dandy DIY-er, I almost consider it a sin to throw out usable furniture that is in generally good condition just because I don't like the look of it. I CAN CHANGE THE LOOK OF IT!

We have a blank space in our kitchen next to the fridge that I've always thought would be perfect for a buffet-type piece of furniture, or even a bar - having an extra surface and extra storage would be so nice for our little kitchen/dining area. *A-ha moment*: repaint the dresser and use it as a buffet! Seriously, I was pissed at myself for not having thought of it sooner. So that is the next project on my to-do list (and I have 2! So I will likely repaint the other one to fit better with my vision for Breckin's room!)

So without further adieu, here are my pins of lovely painted dressers that are inspiring my dresser re-do:

Hope this leaves you inspired to recreate some of that not-so-attractive furniture you've may have been considering throwing out and replacing! Why waste when you can create?
