Tarva Dresser Hack with Home Depot


Hello Sunshine! Today I’m so excited to share with you a project I did with The Home Depot. Back in June they contacted me to be part of their DIY Challenge. The catch, they would send me a mystery material that I had to work with. My assigned mystery material was millwork. Challenge accepted!

I was extremely excited and overwhelmed all at the same time. I thought up a few great projects that would benefit my family but the one I wanted to tackle was my daughter’s dresser. A while back we had purchased a plain unfinished three drawer dresser that would  function as a nightstand and still be her dresser.

When we placed it beside her bed we knew immediately the legs had to go but we didn’t know how we were ultimately going to finish it. All we knew was that my daughter wanted it white. So it sat like that for over a year, forgotten, until the project.

The planning process was a lot of fun! My daughter and I spent a lot of time hashing out the ideas and details. I wanted the dresser to look unique but yet be something my daughter would still love. There’s a lot of hacks out there for this dresser so I had my work cut out for me.

We took a stroll through The Home Depot’s millwork department and I saw these miniature mouldings. The tinytrim was located at the front of the trim and moulding aisle, just below the decorative moulding. I thought it would be just the thing to finish off her dresser.

Besides the intricate style of the dresser fronts I wanted to add a bit more interest or like I like to say pizzazz. I thought a colorful wallpaper or better yet contact paper would give me that unexpected element. I didn’t want to add it to the bottoms of the drawers but the sides. It’s a happy little surprise every time you open the drawer.

Styling my daughters room was a lot of fun. I like to go to a ton of stores and look around to see what jumps out at me. Often times that means we overbuy but that is a good thing with styling. Not everything you love would look right in your space so I like to say we are auditioning pieces to see what works.
My daughter loves her dresser/nightstand and that right there made it worth every hour and, every minute I put into this. Plus the time we spent laughing, planning, and shopping together!
