Multi-Striped Dresser DIY
Try this DIY from HGTV Magazine's Flea Market Flip Blowout!
- wood filler
- paint (multiple colors)
- paint roller
- delicate-surface painter’s tape
- hardware pulls
Unscrew the old hardware and patch the holes with wood filler.
Paint the left and right sides of the dresser each a different color. Let dry.
Starting 2 inches from the dresser’s left edge, use delicate-surface painter’s tape to tape off every other stripe so they’re varying widths. Your last stripe should be 2 inches from the dresser’s right edge. Using a brush, paint each stripe, repeating colors every so often. Peel off the tape while the paint is slightly wet. Let dry overnight.
Tape off the remaining stripes and paint them following the directions above. Paint the 2 inches on the far left the same color as the dresser’s left side and the 2 inches on the far right the same color as the dresser’s right side. Let dry.
Drill holes in the drawers for the new pulls, and screw them in.
