DIY Chalkboard Dresser~Rowan's Nursery

Rowan's home!
Had to skip a post last Friday because I was in the hospital... Rowan Thomas Molitor was born on 8/6 and tipped the scale at
9 lbs 4 oz.

And he loves his new nursery!
(Don't worry momma's-the pillows are from the daybed and are for photo decoration only in the crib)

Before Photo~$20
Der, Doak and I were driving home one day and spotted this very plain but functional dresser in someones yard. The sign said $30 but she gave it to us for $20. I needed some storage for Rowan's closet but after it was painted it was too cute to hide away.

Kilz-Oil Based Primer
Valspar-Black Chalkboard Paint

1st Coat-Primer

The oil base primer dried surprisingly fast. 

Doak took a break from riding his bike to help with the first coat of chalkboard paint.

Working mans hands.

And here it is... a fun addition to Rowan's nursery!

Doak had a blast taking a shot at some chalk designs too!

Cleaning off to create a new design.

And of course a little photo shoot to welcome Rowan into his new room.

We are all so crazy about him...

Even Bebe... our first born (cat).

Much love,
