You can pick up old dressers from garage sales and thrift stores that are pretty banged up but inexpensive to buy, or maybe you have an old piece or two stashed away just waiting to be freshened up. Here are several different ideas you can try to make them look like brand new designer pieces. Many of the projects are super simple to pull off and involve just a bit of paint while others add a bit of wood trim or other elements that really make the furniture pop. I think they’re all fabulous and well done, have fun!
Creative Paint Design : No woodworking skills or tools? Try this easy project that just requires a bit of paint.
Chain Link Design : 12″ wreath forms (made of composite wood) and strips of lattice are glued to the dresser then the whole project primed and painted.
Dresser With Side Shelves : Clever idea to attach Ikea spice rack bookshelves along each side of the dresser.
New Hardware Look : An Ikea RAST side table is stained and painted then new hardware added for the handles.
Campaign Inspired : Drawer fronts are painted with Rustoleum Appliance Epoxy then flat L braces and nailheads are applied with Liquid Nails.
Mod Podge Drawer Fronts : A combination of hand painted designs and printed graphics mod podged to the front of drawers is used to beautify this dresser.
