5 Beautiful Painted Dressers | Update Your Old Furniture

Need to update your old furniture but don’t want to buy new? These 5 beautiful Painted Dressers are the perfect inspiration for an affordable makeover.

If you are new to DIY, one of the easiest ways to transform something that you already own is with paint. So many of us have an old dresser that could use a makeover — and if not they are so easy to find at yard sales and in consignment stores. Here are 5 beautifully painted dressers to get your creative juices flowing…

5 Painted Dresser Ideas

#1. Paint and stain your way to a mid-century modern styled dresser {and don’t forget new legs!}. Check out how Maggie made over a previously plain-jane dresser.

#2. Stripes always offer a graphic punch, and the white paint really modernizes this basic dresser. She didn’t even have to switch out the knobs to give it a whole new feel.

#3. This one is a real beauty. Granted, Martha Leone, specializes in painting furniture {and sells it, too}, but there is so much to learn from this piece  — sometimes aged, antique and layered paint is the best kind of new.

#4. Gray is very trendy right now and I especially like it paired with wood tones. The warmth of the wood keeps gray from feeling too cold. Michelle masters that color combo on this dresser.

#5. This taupe dresser wouldn’t be quite the same with silver hardware, gold was most definitely the right choice. Be daring when it comes to hardware and choose something that will really shine.

Yes. I completely agree -- and I have a piece of furniture that I could totally mimic that vibe with!

I love following your kick off Friday Series! My favorite is No. 1 - the midcentury modern flair is done just right.
