Before & After: Boring Dresser Gets Extra-Special Facelift

Before & After: Boring Dresser Gets Extra-Special Facelift

Chrissann recently re-did a dresser for her daughter's room. In its original state, the dresser wasn't anything special — certainly not an antique — and she wanted something more fun, and brighter than the original boring brown.

If you are sick of seeing chalkboard paint everywhere, or hate the dusty mess of the chalk itself, here's an alternative: try dry erase paint instead. By painting the fronts of the drawers only, Chrissann created a message center of sorts for her kid (once she can read, that is) and another surface to draw on. Even without anything written on it, the white is lovely and crisp and has a semi-lacquered look.

What do you think? Do you like the result?

Readers, you've seen Chrissann's DIY work on Apartment Therapy before when she transformed the wall above her bed with a Dalmatian print stencil. You can find even more of her projects over at her blog, Ducklings in a Row.

Thanks again Chrissann!
