The yellow and white paint just didn't work for our nursery, so with the help of my amazing friend Connie, we spruced it up and I couldn't be happier with the results!
I replaced the knobs on the top drawers with pretty glass knobs I found at Hobby Lobby. Drawer pulls can be a little harder to replace on vintage furniture because the measurement between the holes sometimes vary from those that are made today. I also really liked the look of the existing pulls, so I decided to spray paint them silver. I've never used metallic spray paint before, but what a pleasant surprise! It went on so nicely and now I'm wondering what else we can paint silver!
The silver spray paint is made by Rustoleum and it has a nice, soft silver hue to it. Nothing too shiny and bright.
The Hobby Lobby knobs for $3 each! Can't beat that!
Another small project was the lamp. When I bought it, it had the white glass base and plain white shade. My mom gave me the most gorgeous vintage tape trim(found on Etsy) for Christmas that we were so lucky to find in turquoise, navy and white! It was just enough trim to add to the lamp shade to dress up just a bit.
I am so excited with the progress of the nursery so far! We picked up our hardwood floors last week and plan to install them within the next couple of weeks! Once that's done, we will really be on a roll with wrapping this room up.
