Chevron was one of the biggest trends in walls a few years ago and we still love the bold, modern look. If you’re not ready to commit to an entire wall, why not try a dresser? These dressers all have a different take on the trend from shabby chic to rustic to modern. The peel and stick Grey Zig Zag NuWallpaper is an easy way to get the look in minutes.

The chalkboard everything trend is a fun way to customize your pieces. You can choose to label your drawers or draw fun designs that can be changed to match your mood. The Learn To Write Chalkboard Strips are perfect for a child’s room. They can use them to draw and learn their ABC’s without harming the furniture.

Painting a dresser is a classic way to give a quick makeover, but why not take it one step further and create a custom piece? These dressers were turned into statement pieces using a bit of imagination and creative painting techniques. If painting is too daunting or too permanent, you could achieve a similar geometric look by cutting shapes from our colorful peel and stick Dots, Blox, and Stripes. They’re easy to apply and remove for a super fast transformation.
