The Biggest Dresser EVER

Okay, so a few months ago I found a dresser at a garage sale for $40. It was really ugly, but I thought that I could paint it and then antique it a little.

The before picture:

I decided on an off-white base coat and then we applied a blue on top of that. I then antiqued the entire piece of furniture. Now my idea of antiquing is just making it look old and worn, which is a look that I think I achieved. However, the dresser is HUGE and it's a lot of blue and the blue is also way lighter than I thought. We painted/antiqued the mirrors as well, but they really dated the furniture in a not so good way, so we threw those out. I will probably just buy a mirror to hang on the wall. I do like it and for now, it is being stored in our living room since Olivia doesn't have a room in our current house (which will change in a few weeks when we move). I might even replace the drawer handles, but for now I kind of still like them. Anyway, I can't wait to actually use the dresser/changing table in September.
