imperfections = perfection.

Remember this dresser?

I found it like this.

Refinished it and used it in the nursery as the baby's dresser and changing table.
Well when I first refinished it I had given it a heavy distressed finish. Then I got pregnant and I'm weird with pregnancies and the distressed look was making me nauseous, I know I'm weird, in reality all design related things make me nauseous when I'm in my 1st trimester, I have a theory to it but I won't bore you with that today.

Anyway I decided I wanted the ditressed look back so I went crazy with a sander.

It now sits in our room and is my dresser. I love it!
