New Dressers?

Hey all, hope you guys had a great St. Patty's day, I sure did. We had a great day out on the ranch. We played with our goats, and walked around our property as well as loved on some of our cows. We also had a great dinner with some of the missionaries from our church. We fed them some corn beef and cabbage with mashed potatoes, green beans, and rolls. Then we had mint brownies with ice cream and hot fudge for dessert! It was very tasty. (=
Before all the excitement we spent the morning cleaning and rearranging my girls bedroom because I re-did their dressers.
Here are the before pictures.

this is the top of one of the dressers

this is the front view of the dresser.

closet number 1

closet number 2 (after Daddy took out the shelf)

Under the window. First thing you see when entering the room

 The during process

after I got the stickers off

there was still residue from the stickers

we didn't have a scrub brush so after spraying Goo Gone I used a net bag that my clementines came in
It worked GREAT! 

removed the knobs

primed the drawers

Used a rubber band to help clean off the brush.
Got the idea from pintrest, 

this is the greatest primer ever!
Again got the idea from pinterest

primed and drying! 

the spray paints I used. Yes I know that spray paint isn't the best and I should have hand painted them, but I was on a budget and thought I'd give it a shot.
My oldest wanted blue and yellow to match her Toy Story bedding
My youngest wanted purple and yellow to match her Rapunzel bedding. 

yellow drawers

purple dresser

blue dresser

new knobs painted blue!

moved the shelf that was under the window to into the closet.

the new dressers in their new home! 

It was a lot of fun and I learned a lot. It was my first time ever redoing some furniture, so it was a lot of fun to start off with something new. Next I hope to do some curtains and some vinyl decals for the girls room!
Wish me luck,
--Miss T
