    Thanks for sharing! The changing station drawer is genius! I just transitioned to the floor last week because my 8mo. old is rolling all over the place.

    I’m also expecting a boy this November! The dresser here looks amazing. I’ve been considering doing the same thing to a Tarva dresser for our nursery. Does Kelly have any tips on how she did it and did it so well? Thanks!

      Hi Claire- I used Sherwin Williams All Surface Enamel paint in high gloss for the dresser. First a coat of primer to seal the unfinished Tarva, then 3 coats of the colored paint. A second coat of primer could have probably replaced the third coat of colored paint. I used a very fine grit sandpaper sparingly on the top of the dresser between coats 2 and 3 to assure a smooth finish. Painted the legs and frame with a brush… and a roller on the top and drawer fronts. It was quite easy and I’m very pleased with the results. Go for it, good luck!
