DIY Aztec Inspired Dresser Makeover and Nursery Sneak Peek

Hi friends! I’m super excited to finally be sharing some of my new home with you. Well, just a peek of the little babes nursery/bedroom. We are partnering with ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape from 3M again to teach you how to create this DIY Tribal Inspired look on a plain dresser. I knew I wanted something fun and unique. I haven’t done a whole lot of furniture makeovers in the last few months but it has felt great to get back to our roots! Did you know we started our blog as doing primarily furniture? Anyway, let’s get started!
Materials for the DIY Aztec Inspired Dresser:
- Furniture to paint (We used an unfinished wood dresser)
- Staining pads
- Disposable gloves
- ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape Original Multi-Use
- Titanium Knife
- Level (optional)
- sponge paint brush
- Polycrylic (optional)
Step 1: Prepare your furniture by cleaning the surface properly or stain unfinished furniture and allow to dry according to package directions. Our dresser was unstained and plain, raw wood so it was all ready to go for staining.
Step 2: Using a combination of triangles, diamonds, stripes and tick marks, create a unique tribal design with ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape Original Multi-Use. Trim edges with an titanium knife.
Step 3: Paint a thin layer of paint over the tape using a sponge brush to create a weathered effect.
Step 4: Allow to dry
Step 5. Remove Painter’s Tape
Step 6: (optional) finish with polycrylic clear coat if desired.
This was such a fun and fairly simple makeover. The bedroom is almost done and I can’t wait to show you the rest of the room!
Big thanks to our pals at 3M and ScotchBlue Painter’s tape for partnering with us on this project!
