Ikea TRYSIL Dresser makeover inspired by One Kings Lane Campaign dresser

Before I found the wide dresser on craigslist, I bought Ikea Trysal dresser. I loved the size of the dresser and the different looking feet made me love it all the more.

This is how an Ikea Trysil dresser looks like. (Pic Source Ikea Webpage)

I was planning to wrap the dresser in fabric until I saw this beautiful campaign dresser from one kings lane.

Love the color and the golden accent, but not the price. It is on 30% off sale now for 699 (original price 999). There was no way I would have purchased this :)

Here is my version inspired by the above dresser.

Here is a how to :

Assembled the dresser.


Taped the drawer fronts



I tried sanding down, but the veneer is so thin, I was worried that I would peel it off. Also had another failed attempt with citristrip stripper, that also didnt help me much. Applied the zinsser primer.



After the primer was dry, sanded a bit. Here it is after one coat.


I also spray painted the stand and the drawer pulls


After two coats of paint and poly. I still have to apply the poly on first drawer. I was in a rush to finish off the assembly by Saturday evening as I had few guests coming over.

Ceramic Drum Stool as side table

Hey, how are you all?

Ceramic drum stools are very versatile and not just for outdoors. These can also be used as the side table or coffee table or nightstand.

This tiny table in its original form came with the lamp attached. I took out the lamp part after we moved into this house and was in daughter's room. After this chair moved into guest bedroom, I moved the tiny table here to be used as side table.



Our guest bedroom is going thru few experiments in shades of blue and some pop of Orange. So the plan was to paint this tiny table in Orange with gold dipped legs.

On one of our trip to costco, I noticed beautiful drum stools. These came in three colors and there was one in Orange too. With price tag less than 40$, it was too hard to not to pick up. So this beauty came home with us.



Here it is next to the painted Chair. (You can read about the chairs makeover story here)

Garden Stool as Side table


The top is pretty flat, I was able to put few books for our guests reading pleasure and some fresh flowers

before leaving, here is another shot from the door.


I love how the Orange drum stool looks next to the painted chair.

This weekend I worked on quite a few projects, few need finishing touches and couple are half way thru.

Have a wonderful week ahead!!
