Open any design magazine and you’ll spot at least one project incorporating the ombre effect. Snag a little of this trend for yourself by painting the front of your dresser. Featured by The Bungalow Blog, this multicolored dresser in a muted blue is a subtle take on the popular technique. Consider using a similarly soft shade if you’re looking for a quieter pop of color in your room.
Geometric shapes are another trend taking center stage in interior design right now. If you’re excited by clean lines and simple patterns, consider giving your dresser an update with a geometric treatment. This project from Stars for Streetlights melds the classic appeal of black and white with a trendy triangular configuration flawlessly.
Sticking to a simple design can really pay off when upgrading a dresser. This DIY fromCentsational Girl proves that white can be just as stunning as an electric hue. For a touch of added elegance, consider attaching painted overlays like the lavender ones on these drawers.
While paint is an easy way to change up the look of a dresser, there’s an even simpler solution for freshening up your furniture- use decals and wallpaper for a quick transformation. The retro floral design of this dresser from DIY Network can be replicated with a few decals.
Keeping parts of your original dresser intact can create a unique piece. This dresser fromCentsational Girl shows how a partial paint job can bring outdated furniture into the current era. Try reversing the paint combo (paint the drawer faces and leave the frame untouched) for an equally interesting look.
