Revive a tired dresser using wallpaper with a print, pattern, or texture you love, previous page. Begin by removing knobs, sanding the dresser, and wiping off any residual dust with a damp cloth. Prime and paint the dresser (A); let dry. Lay the wallpaper on a flat surface with the pattern side up. Place the top drawer on the wallpaper.
Using a utility knife, cut the wallpaper around the front panel of the drawer (B). Repeat for all remaining drawers, making sure to line up the top of each drawer where the wallpaper was just cut. (This keeps a continuous flow of the wallpaper pattern across all drawer fronts.) Spray adhesive on the drawer front and attach the wallpaper piece, smoothing out any air bubbles (C). Continue this process for each drawer. Install knobs, and slide drawers into painted dresser.
