Something must be in the water around these parts. Between Marianne’s nightstand and Liz’s upcoming dresser project, it seems like everyone around here has caught the DIY furniture bug. Our readers are no exception.
Since Liz is still deciding how to transform her own bedroom dresser, we rounded up some favorites from the #HGTVmakeover hashtag on Instagram to keep the creative juices flowing.
We’re loving the trend of colorful custom furniture to add fun and personality to a room. I feel like we all have a piece like this one from @Heather_Hill5 taking up space in a garage. Her finished gray dresser is another example of how far a coat of paint and new knobs can go in reviving a piece of furniture that would otherwise go unnoticed.
Logan from @thestylishpeach shares the details of this mid-century modern makeover on her blog. In her case, the original dresser had too many scratches and stains for it to work as-is. A few smart and trendy choices make this piece look like it came straight from a fancy furniture show room.
Ombre is a trend that’s still making the rounds on window treatments, decorative art and focal walls. We especially love it on the drawers of a dresser, seen below in a lovely blue-gray hue by @beautymark_furniture. Want to make your own ombre dresser? We’ll show you how.
