After looking around for furniture painting ideas I became inspired to give it a try. I started with a plain white dresser, very boring.
Below is a picture of my dresser re-do with an added touch of decoupage. I have attempted D.I.Y. decor a few times and I generally love the way things turn out. Much more personal.
I bought a cute booklet of scrap booking paper and used an exacto knife to cut out the parts I wanted to modge podge onto the wood.
The paint is a dark purple but looks quite red in the picture. It is better looking in real life but you get the idea.
During my searching around I came across some really cool ideas for painting furniture and dressers. Some people got really creative and stenciled out flags, others went for a more vintage and distressed look.
I have a second dresser to do now, not sure what I’ll decide on that one but I’m thinking I might stick with my furniture decoupage and paint theme, what do you think?
