A plain piece of furniture is no excuse for a boring room. Creative do it yourself advocate Stacie Grissom demonstrates on her site Stars for Streetlights how to transform a simple dresser into a bold graphic eye catcher.

Stacie explains:

While this project is not very difficult, it is a bit on the tedious/time-consuming side. The first thing that I did to the dresser was stamp all of the triangles on the dresser as a template. Then Sean and I filled in all of the triangles with black paint. I contemplated using a potato as a stamp because there wouldn't be as many holes to fill in, but I'm glad that I used a sponge in the end because I didn't have to refill on paint as much.

After you fill in all of the triangles, add a layer of Mod Podge on top so that your dresser is sealed. I've said it before and I'll say it a million times again, Mod Podge is the most incredible stuff for finishing projects!
