I am nearly done with the changing table/dresser I am building for our baby boy (due in less that 5 weeks!) Here is a picture
Per my wife’s request, I will be painting it antique white and then plan on roughing it up a little to add to the rustic farmhouse style. It was built knowing that she wanted it painted, hence the mismatched wood used. The nursery is designed around a rustic theme (see wall shelf unit here – http://lumberjocks.com/projects/85028 ).
I am planning to paint, then use sandpaper to scuff the corners, creases and edges a bit. I may add a little stain to the uncovered wood to help it contrast more.
Does this sound like the right way to get the look?
Thanks in advance.
