New life for an old dresser

I have been having a lot of fun lately working on re-doing our girls room. We are doing it in a butterfly theme in pinks, purple and lavender. We are trying to use pretty much just things we have on hand and making things to go with the theme. Last week I took an old dresser that we had and decided to re-paint it to go with the theme. Above is the before picture.
Here is Megan on her "new" dresser. After painting it a very light lavender (with leftover paint from my office.) I then stamped it with butterfly, dragonfly and flower stamps.
Here is a closeup of the side of the dresser. It looks so much fresher now.
Hopefully I will get to tell you about the other things we are doing soon. If you have any great ideas for a butterfly room I would love to hear them.

I've been meaning to refinish my own dresser for, let's see, seven years now. :) Maybe your good work will inspire me to finally do it!

That is cute Abi! I thought it might be fun to do a craft of somesort(butterfly) and hang them from fishing string from the ceiling the girls' room would be so whimsicle! Just a thought. There are lots of ways you can make butterflies as a craft.

I also have a couple of dressers I need to "update". I am waiting for spring though it is just too cold to paint outdoors. I am not a good enough painter to do it in the house and our garage isn't heated.
