My husband thinks I am crazy for always taking old things that should be thrown away and recycling them. This dresser was one I was determined to do something with to keep it until we can find something we agree on. Ikea is all of our friends at some point in our lives and this little dresser did the job for so long I wanted to give it some love.
The first thing I did was paint it white to match the other furniture in the room.
Then I decided that I wanted a moroccan pattern and tried to make my own stamp with cardboard and an exacto blade.
When I tried to use the stamp it was a failure and the paint did not stick well and was really hard to line up. So I made my own paper stencil using the outline of the stencil I tried to make a stamp in.
