Five Creative Dresser Makeovers

If you like to give old furniture a second chance with a fancy makeover, you are going to love some of these creative dresser makeovers!  Not only have they been repainted but they have also been given an entirely new look with some creative additional steps.

Each of these ideas should inspire you to dust off that old dresser that you have sitting in storage or maybe you will even feel motivated to go out and purchase a thrift store deal that you can turn into something spectacular!

This first dresser makeover, by Petticoat Junktion, looks like an entirely new piece in it’s new nautical style.  The combination of the distressed paint technique in white, the red stripes, and the blue knobs and legs give an old dresser tons of style.  Check out the link for all of the details.

New knobs and a flower ad graphic add a unique look to the soft bright green paint makeover to this dresser.   Click on the photo to see how the graphic was painted on.

The dresser drawers on this one were sanded down to the raw wood for a nice contrast with the painted dresser.  For added interest to a beach theme, the names of the local beaches were painted across the faces of the drawers.  Check out the makeover by Tattered and Timeless.

Sometimes an old dresser can be repurposed into an entirely new use.  Changing out the hardware, replacing drawers with doors, and giving a new color can make…….a tool chest!  You will want to check out the details on this makeover by The Golden Sycamore.

Finally, I can’t believe the difference in this last makeover!  I love the fact that burlap was used to cover the face of the drawers.  See all that went into renewing this piece by visiting Stone Creek Antiques.

Happy Decorating!
