Evie's Dresser

I wanted to dress up Evie's dresser so we went for a cheaper option from IKEA (although I've had the same line of dresser since leaving college and Ella has  the same as Evie; so they are sturdy but inexpensive). 

We are only painting the drawers so we bought a white version. As the top and sides will go with the room.

We sanded the drawers to remove the gloss seal that was present. (I do mean "we"; I did the first drawer, then Josh took over). 

Then I painted the bottom drawer the true coral color: 

From there came the hard part of gradually lightening the paint color by mixing in white: 

I love how it turned out and can't wait to see it assembled!
