dresser makeover

i don’t know about you, but i L-O-V-E to reorganize and rearrange my house…like every 2 months. it’s kind of sick. i like to change it up and make things look new and different, usually without buying anything new and different! a couple years ago, i bought a new dresser for my room. i found it at ikea, which is awesome. i love walking through the showroom and picking out which rooms i would have in my dream house and pretending like i live in that dream house, even if for a few minutes. so, i bought this really plain white dresser:

see, REALLY plain. (here it is)
i loved the design of it and the fact that it was a great price for a dresser. so, i decided to buy it. thanks to my mom, i immediately started coming up with ideas to spice it up a little and make it my own. after further inspection, i realized that the plastic panels on the front of each drawer were installed in front of the plastic drawer parts inside (i don’t even think that makes sense, but you’ll see soon!) i realized that i could probably get some craft paper in there and have it show through the plastic panels. then, i noticed that the drawer pulls had two holes…perfect for new knobs! so, this is what happened:

i got scrapbook paper from michael’s, which has an awesome selection. and those adorable knobs from hobby lobby, which were 50% off! what i love about this dresser is that i can change out the paper and knobs and have a whole new dresser!
so, there you have it! a quick, easy and cheap diy project to spice up your furniture…what more could you ask for?!
