Kelsey Johnson, the blogger behind Design-Innovate-Create, got a call and sprang into action: a friend had an ugly, boring particleboard dresser that was in desperate need of a makeover.
The structure of the dresser was fine, but it was just so painfully dull.
Kelsey pulled out the drawers and removed the front-facing hardware.
She toned down the glaring white color with a slightly muted shade of grey.
Next, she laid pieces of lace over the drawers.
Then, she picked up a can of pink spray-paint. This is where things get interesting.
After a few coats of the pink paint over the lace, Kelsey pulled the lace up and revealed a gorgeous lace stencil beneath the fabric.
The lines were soft and feminine.
She could have replaced the hardware but, since she was on a budget, she just gave it a good coat of silver metallic spray paint.
It’s hard to believe there’s a boring particleboard dresser under here.
This looks like it came from an expensive boutique furniture store.
It’s amazing what a little paint and creativity can do to old furniture. Have you ever tried something like this?
