Colors and patterns like WHOA on this DIYed, Bohemian-style dresser

By on Jul 17th

Check out this fucking brilliant before and after highboy dresser action from mollykb. Quite the dramatic change, no? This makeover says I'll see your "fresh paint" upgrade and double down on some patterns and funky knobs.

Thankfully she explained how she accomplished this Bohemian dresser look.

BeforeThe dresser after four layers of brightly colored paint had been removed then sanded down.


I painted the dresser body a satin Valspar paint called "bonaventure." Then I took my four favorite scrapbook pages to Staples and had them copied and blown up on thinner paper. Then Mod Podged them to the drawers. Sprayed a few coats of Mod Podge brand clear coat. Added new knobs from Hobby Lobby and lastly stenciled henna and gold colored designs on the dresser top.


Tell me you're not thinking about doing this to your dresser now! Because HELL YEAH!
