DIY - Dresser

When I was pregnant with my little nugget, I was looking for some modern furniture.  I didn't want the traditional nursery furniture that you see everywhere.  I love grey, so I searched for a grey crib.  I found one by Oeuf, the Sparrow Crib.  I fell in love and had to get it! So my mom bought it for me!

I also needed a dresser for my daughters' room.  I searched Oeuf for a matching dresser, here were the options that I found.

My dilemma was that I wanted it to be grey and white and I was also looking for a six drawer option.    Oeuf did not carry the six drawer option in grey, nor did they offer it in just white.  I decided to look elsewhere for a dresser that would somewhat go with the style of the crib.  I searched everywhere!  I then decided to look at Ikea and I found the Mandal six drawer dresser.  It was white and birch and a lot cheaper then the Oeuf dresser, at $300!  I thought, what if I paint the birch?  I asked my father-in-law, the painter to match the grey paint to the grey of the crib. 

 Here is the Mandal Dresser from Ikea, as is...

And here is the dresser after...

What do you think? Not to shabby!
