DIY Dresser Ideas for the Nursery

Save big on your nursery decor by painting or wallpapering a dresser yourself. It’s a fun weekend project. Here’s a bit of inspiration. Click the links beneath each to see it larger and/or for a tutorial.

Ask family and friends if they have any unwanted pieces in storage. Or check your local Freecycle.org or Craigslist for freebies. You can also pick up dressers on the cheap from yard sales and thrift stores.

More B-U-Y than DIY? Shop Craigslist and Freecycle.org for freebies and cheepies near you. IKEA is also a great source (Malm!) if you’re lucky enough to live near one. You can find inexpensive but stylish dressers under $200 at Overstock.com, Target.com and elsewhere. Instead of buying a kids-only item, choose something that will grow with your child. Add color by switching the knobs or handles out with something fun. You could even add removable decals.

And don’t forget: A dresser can double as a changing table. Just attach a changing pad to the top (many come with straps for this purpose).
