This dresser by Brit + Co. got a graphic update with a little tape.
If you're commitment shy and prefer not to paint, you can even use washi tape to change the color of an entire piece, like this IKEA Bekvam stool spotted on Fellow Fellow.

Megan from The Homes I Have Made used extra-wide washi tape to add stripes to a dresser.
And finally there's this chest of drawers by Zoe Murphy, spotted on House to Home. Zoe used paint for this project — you can check out her website, which has many more colorful designs — but I can see this being fairly easy to replicate with patterned washi tape. Happy crafting!
