Since making our pregnancy public, I have been blown away by people’s generosity. There was no shortage of congratulations, clothes, baby supplies, and pregnancy advice. Some of my favorite things given to us were the unexpected gifts; things that friends saw and thought of us and our baby boy on the way.
One such gift were wooden, hand-painted sailboat dresser knobs. My co-worker did her first nursery 9 years ago nautical-themed and held onto these sweet knobs just in case. She believed I could give them a good home and put them to use again- and I did! There were eight knobs, but with two dressers I needed a total of 16 knobs. I searched stores and online to find plain, wooden navy blue knobs and could. not. find. them. anywhere. We found these at Lowe’s. I was a little nervous about them, thinking they might be too busy to add to the sailboat knobs. But once we ordered them and picked them up, I knew it would be a good mix of patterns.
Since I had already organized everything in the dressers, I had to start by removing everything so the hubs could drill the holes necessary for the knobs. But, it turned out to be a good thing. I got to re-organize each drawer! My favorite! Seriously, it was very relaxing and I felt better organized afterward. Refolding all the cute onesies and PJ’s and blankets. Smelling that little baby scent. AHH! It was fun.
These dressers really have come a long way. Check out where they started from here and see how we transformed them from hand-me-down brown dressers to white and nursery-ready dressers!
