i'm working on my son's nursery, and wanted to have pieces with lots of color. we're not painting the walls (rental house), so i came up with this piece to bring in loads of bright color. we're decorating with dinos and airplanes, so this fit right in.

it's an unfinished pine dresser (new), replacement drawer pulls (glass) and lots and lots of blue paint with handmade stencils (posterboard i had lying around the house).







more pics and detailed process on my blog:

This is just marvelous!  It's so colorful and yet still sophisticated.  It should age well as your son grows.  I hope the pup isn't as stern about the nursery as it looks.   Wink
