What a great idea to transform a dresser that is blah into a piece of art and for very little cost. so simple and esy. Anyone can do it. If you do not have an old book then hit up those yard sales and thrift stores. I like the idea of the comics too. Get yourself some pretty hardware to add that special touch. A great idea.

I love the Malm dressers that are sold at Ikea. We have two of them at home. They really are sturdy, well made, and the drawers glide effortlessly! This newspaper print decoupage idea is actually an idea I have had in my head for quite some time that I was going to do with my son's 2 Ikea dressers in his bedroom. But I was thinking more like newspaper comics, the ones in color print. I thought it would give a smile and give color to the natural pine dresser. I am saving this project to my project list!
