dresser sneak peak!!

If you follow me on instagram, then you've already seen this picture but I finished Chloe's ombre dresser last night!!


Side note: Have you ever used the term "ombre" when speaking with someone who doesn't blog or use Pinterest??  I can't tell you how many times I've had to explain to people what I mean when I say "ombre dresser"!  Even Tony tried to tell me that ombre meant "man" (which is actually hombre) when I told him I was going to give Chloe "ombre toenails".  ("Man toenails??")

But back to the subject at hand, I love how it turned out!  I'll probably add drawer pulls at some point, but for now I'm happy with it.  Here is my inspiration picture:

I also got about halfway through hanging up all the newly-painted frames above the dresser, but I ran out of 3M Command strips, so off to Home Depot I shall go.  Here's a picture of some of the frames with their nice new coats of white paint (they're just laying on the carpet here).


And if you remember, this is how they looked before the magic of primer & paint!


Huge improvement, right??  I love how crisp they look now.

I promise to have more pictures of the final product by Thursday!  And thanks everyone for your lovely comments on instagram.

xo,
Rachael

    1. They are expensive and kind of annoying to use! But i don't want to break down and use nails because I was so determined to use the strips. Glad you love it! :)

    1. Aww thanks Jamie! It was easy to do but took awhile since I had to do several coats of primer, paint and the polycrilic spray. Glad it's finally finished!

    1. Thanks, Katie! I was a little worried about the fact that ombre is sooo trendy right now, and trends fade so quickly. But I think it will be easy to repaint one day. That's how i feel about chevron! It's everywhere!
