Got an old dresser that needs a makeover? Why not make it a cool Lego themed dresser? You can even try turning it into a Lego table!
Giving an old dresser that Lego look is a very easy project. All you have to do is remove all drawer handles and then strip old paint by sanding to prepare it for new paint. Fill the holes from the drawer handle screws with a wood filler.
To make it look like a Lego, you will need to cut 1-1/2″ diameter dowel rods into about one inch thick pieces. These circles will serve as your new ‘drawer pulls’ so make sure they are thick enough for you to grasp. You can try making these from old timber spindles or table legs if you have some, instead of buying new dowel rods. The amount of rods and circles you have to get from them will depend on the size of your drawers and your design.
Attach the circles on the face of the drawers with wood glue. Then secure them with screws or nails. And lastly, paint them with Lego colours!
