I had so much fun last time I competed in the Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest, I wanted to do it again! This month, a group of bloggers worked with O’verlays to refinish a piece of furniture. There is an old dresser I’ve wanted to redo since purchasing it for $30 off of Craigslist a few years ago. The clean lines of this piece give it loads of potential! With the help of the contest, I was able to complete a modern dresser redo!

Old dresser with outdated knobs.

The dresser had wooden knobs on each drawer. Initially, the whole thing was stained, but shortly after I bought it, I painted the top and knobs. Now it was time to paint the whole thing!

The plan for this dresser was to replace the knobs with something more modern. I love the look of long metal handles frequently on IKEA furniture, but I didn’t want to spend the $. Instead, I cut strips of wood 13″ long, spray painted them silver, and screwed them onto each drawer using the existing screw holes.

These aren't metal handles. I cut strips of wood, spray painted them silver, and screwed them into existing knob holes for a super modern hardware look for no $.

After completing the new handles and painting the whole dresser gloss black, the last step was to add the O’verlays. O’verlays sponsored the Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest this month, sending their product to elevate furniture design for each participating blogger. I picked out four geometric panels which I attached to the sides of the dresser.

Working with these paintable, lightweight panels to design my modern dresser redo was simple and gave it a much more interesting look!

Use O'verlays to create modern designs on your furniture!
I think it would also be really stunning to add these O’verlays to the drawers of a dresser. There are more examples on how to use the different designs on the O’verlays website.

As you can see, the dresser found a home in my master bedroom. The black mirror above it was created for the previous dresser which resided there. It goes with the new dresser just perfectly, though, doesn’t it!?

Love this before and after furniture makeover! This outdated dresser had clean lines and was made to be something super modern and stylish with overlays and some paint.

Special thanks to the hosts of the Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest for inspiring me once again to transform an outdated piece into something modern!
