2 Creative Ways To Take Your Dresser From Drab To Fab

Investing in new furniture can be expensive. If you are looking to update the appearance of your bedroom furnishings, but you aren't ready to bear the expense of purchasing a new dresser, there are some simple things that you can do to take your dresser's style to the next level.

Here are two creative ways that you can take your dresser from drab to fab without breaking the bank in the future.

1. Add some interesting paint.

A fresh coat of paint is one of the most affordable ways to change the look of your dresser. If you want to add a modern flair to your bedroom, you can take advantage of the ombre paint trend that has become popular in recent years.

Begin by determining how many sets of drawers your dresser has. Then, visit your local paint store and select a paint card in colors that appeal to you. Purchase as many shades of paint from the card as you need to paint each set of drawers a single color.

Begin painting with the lightest color on the top set of drawers, and progress to the darkest color on the bottom set of drawers. You will end up with a whimsical furniture piece that will help you change the look of your bedroom.

2. Add some art.

Many youngsters enjoy hanging posters on their walls. Although posters might not be the best option for wall art in an adult bedroom, you can still incorporate this art into your design by using a favorite poster to update your dresser.

Begin by removing the hardware from your dresser drawers and measuring the face of each drawer and the kick plate that runs along the bottom of your dresser. Cut sections of your favorite poster to fit the drawers and kick plates, and use a decoupage medium to apply the paper poster sections to the front of your dresser.

Once dry, attach your hardware once again. By adding some interesting art to your dresser, you can completely change the design of your furniture piece. Don't be afraid to use posters to help you update the look of your bedroom furniture in the future.

Changing the design of your existing dresser is a great way to update your bedroom without spending a lot of money. Using paint to create an ombre effect, or adding sections of an artistic poster to the front of your dresser can easily change the design of your existing furniture piece.
