Furniture can be expensive, and let’s face it, who’s really excited to spend hundreds of dollars on a dresser? Not many of us.
But a good dresser is kind of necessary for keeping clothes organized.
My favorite solution for this little problem is to makeover an old dresser. A coat of paint can do wonderful things for a beat up old piece of furniture!
I have all sorts of dresser makeover inspiration to share today. I’ve rounded up some awesome dressers that hopefully inspire you to head to the nearest thrift store, find an old dresser and give it a good makeover!
This dresser makeover is one of my favorite projects (and yours – it’s one of my most popular blog posts). It was my dad’s dresser years ago, and my brother Stephen uses it now (along with the nightstand we also painted). It really is crazy what some paint and new hardware can do. And it’s a heck of a lot cheaper than buying a new dresser!
Since you all seem to love a good dresser makeover as much as I do, I rounded up some awesome neutral dresser makeovers from around blogland to share today. (If color is more your thing, check out these colorful dresser makeovers.)
There are soooooo many great dresser makeovers out there. Scroll down to see dresser makeover ideas, including fun DIYs like using fabric inlays, burlap and paintable wallpaper to give your dresser an extra fun touch.
And if you want to take on your own dresser makeover, I list my fave furniture painting supplies at the end of this post to help get you started!
