Something Old Made New Again, Then Old Again!

Confused???? Arden's changing table was a pretty cherry finish until she banged a hair brush on it one night, making it pretty ugly with lots of dents and places where the finish was knocked off. So, I decided to paint over it. I sanded it just a bit to rough it up, primed it and then painted it "Sand Dollar". I wanted to give it a distressed look. So, I began researching and thanks to Martha I have a beautiful finished product. I am so proud of it and had to share it with you. I kept the original hardware because it was still perfect for the look I was trying to achieve. Now, I am on a mission to find a pretty mirror to go over it!

After being primed...looks bad, huh??

I love it. I wish I could be that crafty. You better be getting Arden a brother or sister to use the changing table missy. Me you and Jennifer are all even now so it's your turn to have another baby.
