DIY Idea: A Playful Spin on Painted Dressers!

DIY Idea: A Playful Spin on Painted Dressers!

We're all familiar with painted dresser makeovers.  Heck, we've built up quite a catalog right here on Curbly: some are brightly colored, some have stripes, some have crazy hues hiding in unsuspecting drawers.  They're all pretty fabulous, but I think this may be my favorite dresser makeover idea ever!

Roy McMakin is a designer, architect, and furniture builder who created this monochromatic dresser as an art piece.  I love the concept behind it and can't help but think it offers some pretty great inspiration in the dresser makeover department.  It's a fantastic way to introduce color into your space in a playful way and would work with just about any style of dresser.  And, if bold hues aren't your thing, you could even play off this concept with variations of white and cream!

So, what do you guys think of this artsy take on the painted dresser?  Would you consider something like this in your home?  And of course, you have to tell me what color you'd use!  (I'd probably spring for some crazy purples or maybe yellow if I was feeling particularly cheery that day...)

I'd love one with more muted greens.
