Mod Podge Magic: Malm Dresser

2013-06-22 13.47.13-779990

Materials: 1 Malm Dresser

Description: I had a Malm Dresser my parents bought me when I was in college. However, when I moved to another state and started a new job, I wanted a new look to my apartment.

Here’s what I did!

1) First, I sanded down the dresser, primed, and painted it with “Sorbet Apple” green paint.

2) Next, I used Mod Podge to attach this funky hot pink and orange fabric to the drawers.

3) Finally, I used E600 glue to attach these cool Ring-pop candy looking knobs to the face of the drawers for a decorative element.

Although I had some difficulties trying to figure out how to attach the knobs, I am overall happy with this cheery addition to my bedroom!

    That dresser looks amazing, I love the fun look. Can you use the knobs to open the drawers (are they strong enough, as they are glued on) or do you still have to open the drawers the same way as before?

      Hey Jen! Thanksfor the compliment! The E600 glue is strong, but I still open the drawers the same way as before. If you actually drill/screw in the handles, the knobs would be 100% strong enough :)
