Before & After: Cheerful Wallpapered Chest of Drawers

Before & After: Cheerful Wallpapered Chest of Drawers

Yesterday we saw an amazing furniture transformation that involved wallpapering the frame of a mid-century dresser. Today we found a similar project that was done in reverse — the drawers of this dresser were covered with a cheerful spring pattern.

We spotted this dresser makeover on Bemz Blog, who picked it up from Swedish newspaper UNT. To get the look, designers painted the exterior frame pale yellow and the inside of drawers bubblegum pink. The drawers were then wallpapered using paste and sealed using a clear varnish — try Mod Podge for the same effect.

It's a smart way to update a dresser on the cheap, particularly if you have leftover patterned scraps you're trying to make use of, or if you want to splurge on a small roll of high-end wallpaper.
