Living in such a small apartment, we really needed some more storage. Margaret and I set out one Saturday to find a dresser for the baby and would double as a changing table. We hit up a garage sale, my aunt and uncle's house, and our favorite thrift store for furniture, St. Vincent de Paul (where I got my desk). We found a dresser we liked, but took me a while to commit since we weren't sure how we would lift it into the car and if we wanted to spend all day painting it. I decided to buy it and was lucky enough to be loading it into the car at the same time a couple strong men were outside waiting for their purchase. Problem solved.
We took a stop at home depot and decided to do a gray gradient (ombre) dresser with a white outside. I thought about going more bold with blues or yellows, but ultimately decided on a safer gray gradient that would be more neutral. I'm having DAAP flashbacks to our first year gradient project.
