Monogram Dresser Makeover

Personalize your next furniture makeover with a stylish monogram.

Prep for upcycle by removing all hardware and giving the dresser a quick sanding, making sure to get rid of any loose or flaky paint. Give the dresser an even coat of primer and then once dry, paint. 2 Coats if necessary.

Use a stencil, (or make our own using thicker paper and an Exacto knife), to apply the monogram. Once dry put all of the hardware back on and admire your handiwork.

Dresser makeover just for you!
