I love the way this simple DIY furniture makeover transforms an old dresser into a statement piece.
Emma at A Beautiful Mess updated a dresser from their book Happy Handmade Home. The dresser was already lovely. Sleek, minimal, and modern. And her DIY furniture makeover changes its personality completely.

Emma used a blueprint copy of a photograph to do this project, but you could really use any large paper that you like. A map would look lovely, and so would pretty wrapping paper from your stash. Shen notes that the best choice is something abstract or a landscape. A photo with people, for example, might look weird. what if you lay it all out and then a piece of hardware is sticking out of your bestie’s ear?

What I love most is this project’s simplicity. You only need a few basic supplies to make it:
-blue print copy of a photo or other large piece of printed paper (map, vintage wrapping paper, etc.)
–Royal Coat Decoupage Finish (similar to Mod Podge)
That’s it! You can get the directions and see more photos of this lovely photo dresser over at A Beautiful Mess.
