How to upcycle a dresser

Dresser facelift

Dresser facelift

If you like your dresser and want to continue to use it as such, perhaps a little facelift is in order. That’s what Candice of Candoodles: ReFab Diaries discovered when her friend shared the potential of a dresser from a grandparents’ shed.

You will need:

  • Dresser
  • Sandpaper
  • Latex paint
  • Stencil and stencil brush
  • Knobs

Step 1:

Sand entire dresser.

Step 2:

Paint drawers and dresser with latex paint. Allow paint to completely dry before adding stencil on drawers.

Step 3:

For the stencil detailing on drawers, carefully use a stencil pattern and stencil brush (or sponge).

Note: Remove stencil pattern while paint is wet; latex paint will peel with the stencil if it is dry.

Step 4:

Add knobs.
