Drab To Fab Dresser

Drab to Fab Dresser ~ Out with the old 90's look and in with Fab-ness ! #Makeover #DresserMakeover #LeftoverWallPaper #Upcycling

In my post about Cheri's Tall Mirror , I mentioned that you will definitely see this wallpaper again. We turned her old dresser into a " Drab to Fab Dresser " using the same wallpaper, some paint and black spray paint.

After the Tall Mirror, I have also used the wallpaper on her doors in the new Entrance to her bedroom. After that I did not have much left {hence the patterns not lining up}, but also did not want to let it go to waste.

The above photo shows a tired looking 90's dresser with handles starting to come loose. Other than that, the dresser was still strong and who can do without all that storage space, anyway!

This close-up shows the light grey which I have used to paint the dresser, and the wallpaper, perfectly.

Couple of coats of light grey paint, leftover wallpaper {it is now finished!} and a quick black spray paint on the handles and we have a totally different look which will blend in with the rest of her room.
