The Nicole

The Nicole
We found this little dresser sitting front and center at the local thrift shop.  I left my friend Nicole and our two babies to guard it as I scoured the store for something to throw a SOLD sign on it.  I wasn't giving this thing up!

Solid wood?
Dovetail joints?
Awesome condition? 

We're not sure the history of it, but The Nicole is very well constructed.  We gave her a good sand, followed by two coats of primer.  Not sure what to do with her colours, we decided that we hadn't tried our hand at a "boy" type of dresser, so we made her up with three coats of navy blue on her drawers and three coats of white on the rest of her.  Her feet are navy blue dipped and her handles were painted white.  They looked like knots to us and that went well with the nautical vibe she was giving off.  Finally, she was given a coat of poly to make her shiny and new!

The Nicole would be perfect as a change table in a little boys nursery or as a dresser in your childs room.  Her playful handles and fun paint job lend themselves to an awesome mix of playful and mature - the perfect mix for your home!
