Unique Dresser Makeover

2 Materials
2 Hours

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. VINYL TREES TO PURCHASE




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?

    I really like the dressers, but, where did you get the stencil for that tree?
