A Painted Dresser

Admittedly, I’m not the best at DIY projects. I get impatient and stop measuring and then all the sudden there’s a pile of shredded fabric and dripping paint all over the room. Yet this smart dresser transformation from Elisabeth Dunker seems like it might be doable – even for me, yes?

Elisabeth created the dresser for an exhibition at Tjoloholm, but I love the idea of adapting it for a quirky kid’s space. The details are pretty simple – black acrylic paint on a white dresser, all free-hand (because after all, ants are just a series of circles and lines, right?). I’m tempted to give it a go and am racking my brain for a lonely piece of furniture hanging around. Wouldn’t it look equally fun on an entryway bench or bookcase?

Here’s to quirky DIY projects and the hands that create them! Great job, Elisabeth!
