Lady paints over 5 white dressers. This makeover is fab

Organizing a nursery or a child’s room can be overwhelming with so many options for colors and themes. Aside from that, it can often seem that there are endless items in need of a designated place. There are clothes, toys, books, art supplies, school supplies, and more. Before you can get ahead of the clutter, there is a whole new mess to organize and put away. For anyone who has found sock after sock on the ground or a craft-store amount of coloring accessories after playtime, this fun and functional dresser is the solution for you.
Along with creating a practical piece you to use every day, this tutorial will help you customize a storage solution to your aesthetic. For subtle variation, you can choose five different hues of the same color, like a paint sample. If you live in technicolor, you might choose a rainbow motif. This gives you the complete freedom to customize the storage in your little one’s room. By adding wheels, it also becomes a moveable storage station, letting the organization come to you. Let the kids help choose the colors, and they will be even more excited to keep their space clean with their new easy-to-move, totally unique dresser.
