Use your kids’ artwork to re-do a furniture piece in this fun dresser makeover. You’ll love decoupaging as much as your children love the drawing!
This project is no different. When I was given an old small set of drawers, I knew just what to do with it to make it adorable!
Since this little piece will be used to store my daughter’s doll clothes, I decided to use some of her drawings to give it a makeover. I just love how this dresser makeover turned out!
Mini Dresser Makeover
For this project, you will need:
- Hard Coat Mod Podge
- Foam Brush
- Child’s Artwork (drawings with Sharpie work best)
First, I took my little set of drawers apart and gave it a good cleaning. Then I used some satin white spray paint to make it a nice clean base for this project.
Next, I put my daughter to work with a Sharpie. She created some patterns and designs on plain white paper.
Brush on a thin layer of the Furniture Mod Podge to the area that you want the drawings to adhere.
Allow it to dry and add another coat if desired. I felt like mine needed at least 2 coats for it to be super durable.
I gave the knobs a few coats of aqua paint and put it all together once everything was dry!
Now this piece that was once old and blah is fresh and new – and perfect for my daughter’s room! How cute would this same method be for a nightstand in a nursery or a bookshelf in a child’s room? I’d love for you to try a dresser makeover and share it in the comments!
