Chevron Striped Dresser

Chevron Striped Dresser

Do you have an old dresser that is in desperate need of a makeover? Give it a new life with this Chevron Striped Dresser tutorial! It's the perfect size to fit inside a walk-in closet and is great for storing makeup and jewelry on top. With a few coats of her favorite spray paint, designer Dinah Wulf was able to make something that instantly helped beautify her walk-in closet. With a few simple materials and a little creativity, you can use the same techniques to decorate your very own furniture pieces.
