Ashton's Dresser

I was all excited today to post my "before" and "after" pictures of Ashton's dresser but I only have the "after" picture. Matt uninstalled and reinstalled everything on our computer this weekend because we were having problems and my "before" pictures seem to have disappeared. But it was really ugly before. It was white with huge black wooden round knobs and the paint was coming off exposing the beautiful yellow color it use to be. I spent $20 on the dresser and with some new hardware and a small can of paint I think it turned out pretty good.

This weekend we had a lot of fun at the Murray Park Outdoor pool. Kaleb jumped off the diving board and went down the slide the whole time. He would have stayed all day if he could. Ashton also spent his first night in Kaleb's room. He usually only wakes up once a night to eat and then he's back to sleep. I was worried Kaleb would wake up with Ashton in the night but he didn't.

that is so awesome. is they anything that you don't do?! what type of paint did you use and was the dresser solid wood and does that matter when refinishing it?
