I love solid wood furniture that you can buy in some stores because it's usually quite cheap and give a lot of opportunities to decorate it right for your interior. I'll show you a very simple example of how to decorate wooden chest of drawers with different paints and wall stickers. These guide was originally published on Shelterness blog (http://www.shelterness.com/how-to-decorate-chest-of-drawers-for-a-modern-bedroom/).

You will need these materials and tools: chest of drawers, wall stickers, acrylic paints, green fabric, green satin ribbon, sandpaper, brushes, paper knife, glue, iron.

Apply these rectangles on drawer bottoms and you’re done!
