Pin it and do it: Faux Inlay Dresser

Trish from Love, Laughter and a Touch of Insanity is once again hosting the "Pin It and Do It" challenge which I finally decided to partake in this month!  For this challenge you can use anything you've pinned whether it be recipe, craft, etc. and try your hand at doing it.  I'm a total Pinterest addict so I knew I had to take part (with actual photographic evidence).

Here's the pin I used for inspiration to transform my boring IKEA dresser (original post located on Design Sponge):

I have to admit while the idea to use this pin for my dresser and the sketched outline were both by moi...the hubs stepped in for the staining because "I was doing it wrong."  Haha...little did he know that his staining the dresser was exactly my plan!  All kidding aside, I am super excited by the results.

Here's my before pic:

And here is the dresser post-transformation (please excuse our clutter):

Yay!  I'm so happy with the results.  All we have left is to stain and put on the knobs and this sucker is ready to go!


  1. Oh my gosh, that turned out fantastic!

  2. It looks amazing!!! And since I've had hexagons on the brain lately I'm especially draw to the honeycomb look. Amazing what a bit of stain can do, huh?

  3. That is totally gorgeous. I am SO impressed.
