Have a boring dresser that’s taking up space? Interior designer Jacqueline Palmer is here to show you how to turn a simple but functional white dresser into a chic piece for your home in just a few quick (and cheap!) steps.

“This is a great piece as is, but to me, it looks like it belongs in an office,” she says. “We’re going to add some warmth and texture so that it looks great in your home.”

By adding rustic wood panels, brass nobs, and metallic furniture feet, a simple set of drawers can become a statement piece. See how it’s done above.

What you need:

  • Measuring tape
  • Wood glue
  • Clamps
  • Drill
  • Painter’s tape
  • Spray paint
  • Wood panels
  • Brass nobs
  • Furniture feet
