Let the painting begin...

I'm an EA during the school year which is perfect hours for me as a single Mom but. The one downside is that there's not actually a pay cheque during the summer months then :(  So, for the second year in a row I'm diving into another hobby/job to try to supplement my EI:  painting furniture. I had so much fun doing it last year and I have had a garage full of furniture just waiting for summer to get here. 
After getting the first clean-up week of summer out of the way and cleaning house with a very lucrative garage sale, today I started painting. 
I got these 2 pieces done. They're both for sale by the way but listed on a couple local buy-and-sell sites so if you contact me about them, please know that I'll be looking at time stamps for first/second in line 

This piece is not a fancy piece but its extremely functional due to the number of shallow drawers. I think it would make a great craft/scrapbookers cupboard because the inside of the drawers measures 13.5" x 20" (perfect for 12x12 paper). Or, maybe additional kitchen storage so your spices could be easily seen.  $50 if you're local and interested. 

(first, a before shot: don't ask me what that metallic cream coloured stuff is-its not magnetic or anything. Just weird)

And after:
This wooden dresser has seen several children and now that we're done with it, I gave it a tune up and painted it out in a beautiful baby blue. I also dug out a set of vintage ceramic drawer pulls that I'd been saving for something special. Wouldn't this make a great addition to a baby boys room. It's also the perfect height to be a change table. 
$100 if you're local and interested.
