Boy Dresser

I have two girls and to me, it's very easy to clothe girls, decorate for girls....basically anything I want to do there's "look". Shabby chic. Princess-y. Classic. Vintage. But boys? Oh man. I couldn't imagine.

I had this dresser with very modern lines. No frills, no swirly edges. So in my head I thought, "Let's try to 'boy it up'." Give those boy mommas a little distress, but keep it "manly". (I even got out the power tools to distress, gals!) I gotta say, I'm not sure if it worked. Here are the "after" pics. I'm not 100% in love with the finished product, and I'm so beyond posting only perfect pieces. This one? My verdict is still out.
