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.
Dresser (something you want to makeover)
Decorative paper (Chasing Paper)
Electric saw (to remove original legs)
Scissors (or blade)
Brass corner guard plates
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.
