Before & After: Sheena’s Dresser + Leopard Drawers

by Grace Bonney

This before & after is a dresser makeover with a little surprise. On the surface it’s a simple paint and hardware switch (which looks nice and clean), but the part that I love the most is waiting inside. Sheena from Modern Missus was originally going to paint the inside of her dresser drawers with leftover turquoise paint, but decided to take a little inspiration from her own two hands- literally. After drawing leopard prints onto her nails, she decided to use a few sharpies and recreate the pattern on her drawers. The result is a great bit of pattern and a wonderful compliment to the neutral grey on the dresser’s exterior. Great job, Sheena! xo, grace
