An addition to the Nursery

Today I finally finished a chest of drawers I have been working on for the nursery:

They used to look like this....

Seems like it would have been quite a simple project, right?  Wrong!  

Well, the preparation part was simple enough, but painting the red lines on the drawers and along the bottom was a real nightmare.  The red paint I had covered so terribly that I had to paint each line about 6 times and that resulted in a lot of stuff ups! 
Luckily I had already decided it would be 'distressed', so I knew it would end up being ok:

Did you see those handles?  Well, did you?  They were the WORST part of the whole thing to do.  No matter how I painted them they just didn't fit in well with the look I was trying to create.  In the end I just decided to paint them one last time and leave them however they turned out. 

The nursery is finished....for now!
