Some of my favorite projects for DIY are the makeovers. The before and afters. I could spend hours just looking at stuff like this! What about you? Are you in the mood to update a dresser or a wall in your home or office?
I learned from Laura Gummerman of A Beautiful Mess, that you can buy removable designer paper for just about any surface. It's called Chasing Paper. Have you heard of it? Now that I know about it, I can think of a million projects I could use this easy peel and stick paper for.

Supplies Needed:

Dresser (something you want to makeover)
Leg plates
Decorative paper (Chasing Paper)
Electric saw (to remove original legs)
Scissors (or blade)
Brass corner guard plates
Spray paint
Spray finish
Step 1: First, you need to take an electric saw and cut off the wooden legs.
Step 2: Using sandpaper, rough up the table slightly.
Step 3: Apply paint to the dresser and spray sealant after it's completely dry.
Step 4: Attach the leg plates to the bottom of the dresser and screw on legs.
Step 5: Cut the desired shape of the decorative paper. Chasing Paper products are self-stick and do not require special tools or adhesives. Also, if you make a mistake, you can easily peel it off and re-stick it.
Step 6: To give your makeover a finished look, add decorative brass guard plates around the corners, as shown.
