Procrastinator Party - Preview of Project Plus a Bonus



OK I am still a procrastinator. I am working on the wooden toy boxes still for William's room. I hope they will be finished tomorrow. I just have to paint them.

Here is the before..




Here is one of the boxes before painting and making the handles. They will be painted Navy and I will be adding rope handles to keep with the nautical theme...





OK here is the reason my toy boxes aren't done. I have this dresser that I got free on Craigslist. When my sister and I went to pick it up the people were so creepy and even though it was the ugliest thing I've seen we took it and left. For about three months I have been stuck on what to do with it. I decided to paint it and I can always change it if I hate it. It needs another coat of pink and the white is only primer. I need to find drawer pulls too. Well it's almost done so check it out....




Here's the before...
