Modern Mountain Dresser

It’s been pretty busy around here lately! Don’t ask me where we find the time to do these DIYs, but we do. And to be honest, it’s kind of a nice way to relieve a lot of stress from packing and the idea of moving to another country in under a week. 

Modern Mountain Dresser

We’ve had this dresser from IKEA for ages. I’ve always had plans to paint it at some point, but never had the time. Until now…go figure! I decided to revamp it now, since it’s empty and the house is clearing out. That way, it won’t be hanging over my head when we get to the new house.

I originally planned on having it in Violet’s room, but I decided to give her our mid century dresser in our dining room. The boys will have no problem sharing this one! Plus, it gave me an excuse to paint it black to match their new room design I’m currently working on.

I simply used the same steps as my Revamped IKEA Organizer, but this time I taped top to bottom so it was mountain-like in shape. I removed the drawers and sprayed a few layers of black spray paint. When they had completely dried, I removed the tape and placed the drawers back in the dresser! It really took no time at all!

I love the modern mountain look…it’s very geometric and abstract. It’s going to look great with all the other pieces in their new room! Can’t wait to have it all set up and show you the end result. What do you think of their new revamped dresser for now?!

XOXO, Lidy

    This dresser is so fun! I love the mountain-shaped pattern and I really like the contrast of the natural wood against the black. Also, I agree with Rachel, the knobs are so fun!

    Hello! I just came across your blog from the Huff Post article as I too have this very same chest of drawers and I am totally inspired for when it’s time to give it a little make over. You have a wonderful blog and I am loving every post I’m reading; including your adoption story! It’s beautiful and I’m so happy for you and your family xx

    Hi Lidy, I found your blog via Apartment Therapy and love that dresser! The black design looks great next to that modern chair and pillow. Speaking of the chair, where did you find it? I’ve been on the hunt for one just like it.

    Thanks a lot!
