little dresser, turned blue

This little dresser is plain wood no more! It is now fit for a sporty little boy's room.


Here is a close up of some of the drawer designs. I took some oops paint from the local home improvement store and used it to paint the base. Then using wallpaper boarder and spray adhesive, affixed it to the sides and top drawer of the dresser. The paper was a little large for the drawer fronts, so it was cut to the right size and a red and white boarder were painted to match the original boarders. Then a few pieces of sports equipment were cut and glued over the edge to make it feel more authentic. As a finishing touch, I added some of the blue paint to the edges of the balls, and such. Thus making a cohesive collage. Oh and the knobs got a little red paint along with a layer of clear varnish too!
