Transform an old dresser with a modern geometric design. All you need is a little paint and clean, crisp lines.
Color blocking -- the technique of pairing contrasting colors directly next to one another -- is having a moment right now. And so is the use of geometric shapes. Combine the two trends by upcycling an old dresser with a modern and fresh DIY. All you need is some paint and our easy-to-follow how-to.
Remove hardware from the dresser. Most knobs will come off with a screwdriver, but you may need other tools depending on the age of the dresser and type of knob. If the drawer pull doesn't have a screw, try twisting it to the left to loosen or unscrewing the nut and washer.
Mark off triangles on the dresser with painters tape. Let some of the shapes overlap.
Paint inside the lines of each taped triangle. Be sure to paint adjacent triangles different colors. Let dry.
Paint the hardware gold. Let dry. Then reattach with the screwdriver.
