Unique Dresser Makeover

Just because it's a dresser doesn't mean it has to go in the bedroom. I took two small dressers and turned them into a unique focal point (which included a vinyl tree on the wall) with some paint and cut out letters. And of course a quote I loved. Dec 2015 UPDATE: I've had several ask about the tree. I got it on eBay at the time but you can find several stores on Amazon that carry it though its a bit pricer. http://amzn.to/1SgQGSh
Cut out letters for quote (or purchased vinyl ones)
Mod Podge for letters
These were the original small dressers.
I removed the knobs.
Then I spray painted the fronts of the drawers only.
I choose a quote that I loved and cut out the letters using my Silhouette Cutter. Though you can buy ready made vinyl sayings.
I lined up my quote and attached it with spray adhesive.
Then I used Mod Podge over the front. More details on my site link below.

    I love this! Where did you get the vinyl tree from, if you don't mind me asking?

      Wish.com carries many vinyl stick-on sayings. This arrangement makes the tree seem alive. Jewell
