Home Decor and So Much More! Home Decor and So Much More!

I wanted to share with you my tiny dresser make over. I love seeing when you ladies redo something & get so inpsired. The dresser was my brothers who passed away a few years ago. I was happy to give it new life & use it! Let me know what you think!

Omg ! Super cute! 

Can i ask your advice? 

I have 2 ikea billy bookcases... 

And I have always wanted to get a wallpaper for the back of the bookshelf...to make the shelves pop... Do you think I canuse your modge podge idea that you use on the top of the super cute dresser? Will that work on pressboard and laminate? They were inexpensive, but we have them in our guest room and I do like the scale and use in there... Your thoughts?

I know what you mean. :)

My sons bff died tragically and his parents gave his dresser to my son and I have it now. We use it in our dining room and call it "Dougie's Dresser" when referring to it when something is needed from it. It will always be called that.
