Place the dresser on a drop cloth. Paint the entire dresser with lilac paint. With FolkArt Home Decor Chalk you will not need a primer. Use 2 or 3 coats of paint until the desired color is reached. Make sure to allow for dry time in between coats.
Cut out the design from a poster. For this design, we used an Audrey Hepburn poster. Tape the poster onto the front of the dresser for placement. Make sure the eyes or important features are centered on a drawer.
Trim the poster into strips to fit the fronts and back edges of the drawers.
Attach sticky-back gems to highlight areas of the poster. We added them to the necklace, earrings, and tiara area.
