From Paint, Paper, Posters and Beyond!

Want to dress up your dresser? Whether yours is a flea market find or an old family favorite, it’s easy to transform a ho-hum chest of drawers into something special.

Get inspired! Scroll down for photos and ideas.

A Stenciling Masterstroke

How clever! Keep the warmth of wood while adding fresh style with a splash of stencil. This darling design runs off the top and down the front, using three coordinating colors. The pulls also get a fresh coat of paint, and the treatment is protected with clear polyurethane.

Turn Over a New ‘Leaf’

This botanical-inspired design is achieved with stamping, using craft foam cut into various leaf shapes. First paint the whole piece a fab new color. Then lightly dip a foam leaf into your coordinating paint color, blotting on a scrap piece of cardboard, and start stamping! Do the top and/or sides, too, if you like. While still wet, make vein lines in the leaves by drawing off some of the paint with a thin object such as the tip of a small paintbrush handle, which you can also employ for painting on the stems.

Pop Art Piece

Posters aren’t just for decorating walls. This fun look really “pops” with an oversized poster of a work by pop art king Andy Warhol. See how to create your own arty dresser here.

Serving Up Style

This old dresser was given new life as a buffet. All it needed was some paint and pretty wallpaper. To give this a try take out the top drawers and cover the bottom of the opening with plywood, if necessary. Paint it completely and paper the drawer fronts with wallpaper paste. Repurpose the removed drawers, if you desire. Here, after painting and then papering the inside, one drawer was hung on the wall to become a sweet matching shelf.
