We are looking at how painting a nursery dresser can transform and modernize an old dresser.

Can you use an old dresser in the baby's room? Absolutely! Dressers are often such workhorses and are built to last. With a bit of paint and perhaps some new hardware, you can transform and modernize a dresser

A nursery dresser is an important nursery essential that will help you organize baby clothes, diapering essentials and allow you to create a diaper changing station. However, you don't have to go out and buy a brand new dresser. 

If you have a good solid dresser in the house, with a bit of painting, you can transform the dresser to fit into your nursery design plan and style.

Below are some dresser transformations with fresh paint and new hardware.
