After searching Craigslist for a couple of months, I finally found the perfect dresser for the nursery. This will also double as her changing table.
I have such a thing for well made antique & vintage furniture. The only thing I’m not completely loving about this piece is that the top is laminate. So I’ll probably prime it with some Linsser primer & then paint over. While I’m at it, I was thinking about doing a stencil on the top part too. Kind of like the quatrefoil stencil I did on our antique buffet. Honestly though, I might just keep it the way it is.
I’m so in love with the original antique gold hardware
Surprisingly the drawers don’t stick or get jammed. They slide out like butter! This piece was made by Morris of California. They are known for their smooth sliding drawers. So if you love vintage furniture, but hate the sticking drawers, search for one of these.
Above her changing table, I plan to make a gallery wall out of gold frames & other accents. Can’t wait to see how it all turns out!
I’m officially in the 3rd & final trimester!! We have 90 days to go. I can’t wait to meet this daughter of ours!
We had a doctor’s appointment last week & everything is right on track
Current cravings: candy canes & lemon water
Current weight gain: 24 pounds
Current annoyances: not being able to take my shoes on & off without it feeling like a workout, occasional lower backaches
Things I miss: caffeine, wine, sleeping on my stomach, sleeping through the night & not having to pee 8 times a night (NOT an exaggeration)
Things I’m loving: All the kicking from my baby – except when she is stomping on my bladder in the middle of the night. ouch! Having dinner made for me & house cleaning done by my sweet loving husband! He has been so helpful & incredibly sweet throughout the pregnancy. Love him!!!
