Pretty In Pink...Dresser Makeover

I am loving yard sales. I usually go to all the yard sales in our area, my husband happened to drive by this in the neighboring town. 

They had already done a lot of the sanding. 

After a coat of primer and a few coats of paint, here's what it looks like now. 
  My husband suggested adding the pink to the drawers, I wasn't too sure at first, but I love how it turned out. 

I used paint we had left over from other projects, except the spray paint. 

I just spray painted the handles white. Anyone have any experience with that? I'm worried they might chip easily. But I'm willing to try it, since I don't want to spend more on hardware than I paid for the whole dresser. 

I also lined the drawers with a pink fabric. I started out using fabric mod podge, but I ran out so I ended up just using regular school glue. I squirted a line of glue around the edges, spread it around a little with a foam brush and added the fabric.

Side note: This fabric was also purchased at a yard sale by my mother-in-law. I made a skirt for each of my girls and still had tons left. I think she paid $1 for it and there had to be at least 3 yards.

This dresser now belongs in my 2 year olds room. I love her room, it's so girly.

So what do you think? Do you like it?
