DIY Dresser Makeover with Balsa Wood

Do-It-Yourself (DIY) is the smartest way to give your older items a new makeover and match it with the latest decor trends of the market. In this write-up, we will talk about how to give your flat-front dresser a DIY makeover and give it a complete new look.

What you need?

  • Balsa Wood

  • Adhesive Tape

  • Cutter/Sharp Knife

  • Hot Glue

  • Spray Adhesive

  • Polish Finish Spray

How to?

Balsa wood is a miracle material for all your DIY projects. It is soft and firm at the same time and very easy to cut with common knife or cutter. So you have to take Balsa wood and cut it into planks equal to the size of your front drawers.

Once you are ready with the cut-out planks, give them a creative stain with any stain product available in the market. Just spray it on the planks in random patterns to give a classy look. When the stain dries, start with the final pasting process.

Though the balsa wood is easy to stick, you must try out several adhesive sprays if you don’t want to ruin the original surface of your drawer. Find out the right type of glue that conveniently peels off later and leaves the material intact. Stick the planks on the flat fronts.

Finally, give these a fine polish finish and there you go! Just a few simple steps and you have a completely different dresser that is no longer an outdated decor piece.
