Wednesday Goodies: Spruce up your furniture with… Washi Tape!

I’ve been sharing a Wordless Wednesday link up for, gosh, FOREVER now. I love having this link up, but I really don’t know if it qualifies as a “wordless” post. I love Wednesday’s and always have a ton to say. Ha! SO, I’m just going to change the name to Wednesday Goodies. I usually share my favorite things on this day, so this name just covers this better.

OK, onto this Wednesday’s Goodies…

Do you have any furniture pieces you love, but there’s just something missing? Well, we have this dresser in our entryway that I LOVE, but it’s pretty boring at the moment. While at Alt Summit, I saw that Better Homes and Gardens used some Washi Tape to spruce up a piece of furniture in their booth. So simple/quick/cute. SO, I’ve added a bit of washi tape to my dresser. IT’s not permanent, but I’m happy with it for the moment. Much better than the plain brown.

If you’d like to see all the details on my washi tape dresser, head on over to my Better Homes and Gardens post. Sooooo, what do you think? Any thoughts/ideas on what I should do for a more PERMANENT update to this dresser? I love the shape of this thing, but this solid color is just not cutting it for me.

Happy Wednesday,

Chelsey

    I saw this image in BHG last year, part of an article on things to do under $50, and bought a similar dresser to paint the drawer fronts and it turned out great. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-NSIwf-Sn4Wk/TrQOla0JAcI… Just an idea.

    Cute! As for the color dilemma… have you thought about the whole 'ombre' thing with some stain? Lighter coat on the top drawer, medium on the middle, and dark on the bottom?

  6. I have very recently started using Washi Tape, I have not yet done any kind of big things, it is more for decorating my Project Life scrapbook. But I love it!

    I love this! I've also seen DIY projects where they'll do a repeating pattern in a lighter shade. That could be interesting, I'm just such a chicken, ha.
