One of our very favorite things about the nursery design world is that we get to play with color, whimsy and childlike fantasy. Recently, there’s been a furniture trend popping up everywhere that definitely fits that bill—painted dressers. We started seeing a few on Pinterest, then on blogs, then at some of our favorite furniture companies. A painted dresser could be considered a design risk, but we say it’s one worth taking.
This mid-century modern dresser has brightly colored vertical stripes painted on it, making it funky and vibrant. We love that the stripes go behind the handles, so they stand out.
This gray flamingo dresser knocked our socks off when we first saw it. The traditional design of the dresser paired with the sweet flamingos makes for a fabulously unique piece.
We love the vintage vibe from this turquoise and purple chest with brightly colored butterflies. This one is on the smaller side and could work as a nightstand to add a pop in a little girl’s bedroom.
A bit on the edgier side, this artistic piece is covered in gold leaf birds, butterflies and a few odder things too. The shapes are simply silhouettes—chic and classic.
A painted dresser in a nursery or kid’s room is definitely a statement!
