DIY changing table

One of the first projects I knew I wanted to tackle when we found out we were having a baby was a changing table. I've always adored a good DIY repaint project. 
It took a lot of trolling on Dallas and Houston Craigslists, but one afternoon this little gem popped up. I loved that it had curved drawers, the wheels on the legs spoke to me, and the top looked big enough to hold a changing pad for the babe.
We drove up to Denton one morning and picked it up to bring home. The owner had 3 babes of her own and she used it in her youngest daughter's nursery, too. I thought that was super sweet.
We sanded, and got to painting. We chose Kendall Charcoal by Benjamin Moore.
The outside got a couple of coats of the Kendall Charcoal, while the inside of the drawers got blue and white stripes. Pretty precious if you ask me :)
The drawer pulls are from Lowes, nothing too special. I liked that they looked a little more updated. They came in chrome, but I've been really into the gold/brass trend, so I had too. I spray painted them with Rust-Oleum's metallic gold, and LOVE how they turned out.
I love bringing new pieces into our home. I just get so excited every time I pass by. I'll be even more excited when I can put it to use, if I EVER go into labor :)
