I just discovered this old picture—by that I mean from 2004.
One of the projects was REworking a thrift store dresser (I bought and revitalized when the BIG brother was born -in 2004) to look less baby’ish as it moved to the LITTLE brother!
I shared the Before & After project with you, but couldn’t share the BEFORE THAT portion because I didn’t know what ever became of the pictures. Since I just found one of them, I thought it would be fun to revisit this cute project!
This is where it started . . . original “beauty.” $15
I liked the “framed” front profile—and it was SOLID wood, well made, and heavy. Perfect for a future rough & tumble boy- right?!
My niece wanted to decorate the baby’s room with blues & greens and lots of animals! I can do that!
Again—this was back in 2004.
Eventually, it passed from BIG brother to LITTLE brother
-and needed to “grow up” a bit more too. That was the Summer of 2012.
You can read about that project in the original post HERE. In the top picture my great nephew was about even with the doorknob, at 4. He’s 7 now and TALL. I should check back—wonder if it needs another update!? ; D
