GIRL-EE Dresser and Nightstand

These are my OLD dressers and they needed a face lift.

I think just about one in every three girls had one of these growing up. Maybe not this tall dresser but the same white dresser with gold trim. I know a couple of my friends had some growing up.

 The handles are my favorite.

They are so girl-EE and just so cute.

I wanted something WAY girl-EE. Pink, White, and Green are the colors I choose.

I wanted to try stripes so this is what I came up with.

Things like this make me hope that one day we will have a little girl-EE in our home!!

The end table is what got me started. I saw a dresser similar to this on KSL and I absolutely fell in love

and had to give it a try.

I did the stripes on the top of the nightstand because it's so short you would be able to see it.

For the tall dresser if I painted the stripes on the top of it-you would have to be GIANT to see them, and lets just say I am not a GIANT.

So I did the stripes down the front of four drawers.

 I also painted the tall dressers sides green to tie in the green pieces on the drawers.

These dressers are FOR SALE as a set
