Denise has been working on giving her closet a complete overhaul, and needed a dresser to contain some of the clothing. When her neighbor decided to put this dresser out for the trash, Denise eagerly picked it up and took it home for a makeover, and blogged about it at Denise Designed.
This was an old Ikea dresser. After removing the hardware and doing prep basics like sanding and filling holes, she gave it a coat of creamy white paint. Next, Denise tried out a new product from Frog Tape called Shape Tape. The kind she used made a wavy stripe that looks just like ric-rac trim. She applied the tape onto the drawer fronts and painted over it with bright fuschia to create a funky take on stripes. With the addition of new hardware, this trashed dresser is now a work of art! I think it’s too pretty to hide away in a closet!
