Pure White Dresser, Changing Table or Bathroom Vanity (Asheville Furniture Painting)

A pure white dresser that is painted in Maison Blanche's Magnolia with clear wax.
I do not usually use this color because it is so finicky. It needs to me on the right piece because it is not very forgiving.
I have applied to to other pieces that I have painted and ended up redoing it with a color.  Maybe it is just because I like color on my furniture.
Who knows.

I had considered leaving the drawers in the natural wood because it was a pretty Birdseye maple.
And sure there are people who are shuddering at the fact that I painted it.
But they will get over it.
I do think that it would make a pretty changing table in a nursery.

I wish I had been into painting when I was decorating my nursery for my little ones, it would have been much easier and affordable.
But 17 years ago we were not doing fun stuff like this.  You had the traditional changing table and you would not have dreamed about using old furniture.  That would have been pure crazy.

And I do like the original hardware but if you wanted to glam it up for a little girl it would be easy to do.

When your little one is no longer in diapers and can be used as their dresser.
Who woulda thunk?
