Nesting DIY

Someone asked me the other day if I have started nesting yet. I was about to tell them "I don't think so" when I realised my days have been filled with painting walls, sewing little clothes, baking, cleaning (yes mum, me...cleaning) and DIY furniture overhauls. I think this just may constitute as nesting. I plan to makeover a small chest of drawers for Princess Bumpy's room and think I might paint the body and glue paper to the front of the drawers and finish off with cute knobs. Here are the wraps I like so far but am having trouble deciding so I need some help - what do you think? My main colours so far have been pale, dusty vintage blues, yellows and pinks and I was wanting to add a bit of red to take the edge off the pastels however I am going to make a red and white polka dot pendant shade so it needn't include red. I am open to paint colour for the body.
