I acquired this five drawer dresser and immediately knew what I wanted to do with it.

We headed to Home Depot and I picked a paint chip in varying shades of gray.

You can get the little sample pots of Behr paint for about $3, so we requested a pot of each shade on the chip.

The chip had four shades so each drawer got a couple of coats.  Mike did the top drawer white, as well as the dresser's structure.

It's found a {temporary} home in Grayson's room but will hopefully find a permanent home soon.

I think the ombre look is so fun!
