DIY-ify: Washi Tape Dresser

A couple of weeks ago I attended the Alt Summit conference, in Utah. Better Homes and Gardens had a little booth set up and it was pretty adorable. It was like a comfy little living room in the middle of the hustle and bustle of this conference. The dresser in this “living room” had a nice detail: washi tape lines. Yup. Those lines you see in the photo above are not painted on… it’s gold wash tape. What’s washi tape? It’s a lovely decorative tape that can be easily removed. There are SO many cute designs (you can find a wide variety on Etsy).

When I came home the first thing I did was stare at the dresser in my entryway. I’ve been so bored an uninspired by this thing for months. I cannot decide what I want to do with it. Paint it teal? Add a crazy design? Add some gold leaf? I don’t know, so it just sits there. BUT, this week I’ve added some gold washi tape stripes. It will keep me happy for a while, until I actually decide what I want to do.

Before:

 1st try: I attempted some stripes… then decided I wasn’t feeling it.

 2nd try: I liked this, but I felt like something was missing…

Final: Done. I may change it up a bit more, BUT that’s ok! It’s so easy to move and adjust. Maybe diamonds?

Have you tried out Washi Tape yet?

P.S. Ignore the blue tape on my walls…. we are painting!
