Top 10 Dresser Makeovers

Dressers are the best makeovers!  I love the process of painting them.  My favorite part is after everything is painted and waxed, to put the drawers back in and attach the hardware.  I spend so much time with the dresser separated from it's drawers that when it all comes together it is a fun reveal right before my eyes!

I have put together the Top 10 Dresser Makeovers I have blogged about.  I hope it inspires you to try painting a dresser!  (I did inspire my husband and BFF)

Click on the photos to go to the original post.
My husband painted this Phillies sports theme dresser!

I painted this dresser with Safe Paint (milk paint for walls) in Bayberry Green.

This dresser was painted with homemade chalk paint and then stenciled with the numbers.

Another dresser painted by my husband!

This rustic grey dresser is my absolute favorite makeover I ever did!

This dresser was painted in Posh Red.  It was the first time I ever filled old hardware holes.

Another beauty in the Posh Red.  I also used the technique where I add painted lines over the stained top to hide flaws.

This Empire dresser makeover is one of my most popular posts!

My BFF did this knock off makeover and saved herself a ton of money.

Finally my cream dresser that I added a sweet plaid on the sides by using painters tape.

  1. they are all so beautiful! I think my favorite is the red one with the painted red lines on top.....but then again..... oh, I can't choose! they're all awesome and you ROCK!

  2. I love all of them! I always enjoy seeing what you do with dressers. You inspire me.

  3. These are all great! You always do amazing work!

  4. I purchased an "antiqued" yellow and gold dresser several years ago at a used furniture store and my husband has always hated it. Recently I painted it with some leftover white and spray painted the brass hardware black. Now it is extra storage in our kitchen and he loves it because I didn't go out and buy something new instead! Baby steps. Love all your projects!

  5. This is great! I was just telling my daughter that I really need to redo her dresser. I'll have to stick around and get some good tips and ideas! :) Saw on Hickory Trail party.
