Writing on the Furniture: DIY Dressers

We have featured lots of ways to update old dressers whether using one large image, attaching a poster, stenciling, hand drawing, or any number of ingenious hacks. We've got a few new ones we're excited about that embellish dressers for kids rooms and may inspire them, too.

1. Parker's nursery featured on On To Baby is a delightful mix of glam and whimsy. Case in point, the hand-painted dresser with the words: "play," "twirl," and "snooze" which nicely sum up the spirit of a child.

2. Debbie at Painted Therapy came up with this idea, using an old dresser that she lovingly named Theodor, in honor of the quotation's author, Dr. Seuss. A fresh coat of paint allowed her a blank canvas on which to place the timeless message, and she even matched the drawer sides to her font color.

3. Dresser embellishment can be decorative and also useful. These simple shapes help a child find articles of clothing in the proper drawer. Heck, they might even put them away. Seen on Bolig Pluss.
