Furniture painting is not only a way to be environmentally conscious and to save money decorating your home, but it’s also been a form of art for decades. Painting dressers can help give your bedroom, guest room, or living area a much-needed statement piece while offering extra storage where needed.
I’ve gathered up some of the most gorgeous DIY painted dresser ideas from around the web for you – some are more simple in style, some are stenciled, have image transfers, decoupage, or have multiple colors and techniques involved.
Prep Work: Of course, before you even start painting, you’ll want to spend time preparing your piece first. This is so important! Prep depends on current damage, the existing finish, and type of wood. Grab my free guide for how to properly prep furniture for painting here.
Dresser Paint Colors: When it comes to painting dressers, neutral paint colors are safe and will work in almost any space. However, taking a risk with a bright color or multiple colors can really elevate your painted dresser into a custom work of art that you’ll definitely want to show off and brag about! When deciding on your color and design, think about the room it will live in, and the current theme or style. You have options for simple/basic, masculine, feminine, formal, industrial, farmhouse, modern, retro, etc.
