Ombre style coloring is all the rage in home décor. Ombre colored pieces give a water color effect, where the color starts off light and trickles down to a bolder hue. You can add the look of ombre easily to your space by using a simple painting technique. Take a look below at how to paint this DIY Ombre dresser using ombre coloring. It is easier than you may think and the finished result is something that looks of boutique quality. We hope that you love our DIY Ombre Dresser. Take a peek!
We found the paint used for our project at Target. They have a new line of home décor paint out called Devine, and the colors are beautiful. You can buy sample sizes (8 oz.) for $5, which is the perfect amount for this project. We now suggest Annie Sloane's Chalk Paint in the color we linked to above for better and longer lasting coverage.
As far as a dresser, check out your own garage or local thrift spots to see what you can find. Also check NextDoor. Ours was a curb cast off that needed some love, and as you can see it cleaned up nicely.
Trust your eyes. If your colors are not drastic enough of a change for you just add more of the color or the white paint to get the hue of your choice. Always apply two coats to each drawer so you can get an idea of the true color. You can always add additional coats to darken the color if you wish.
When your paint is dry, you can apply a clear coat for protection or distress it slightly with sandpaper for an antique look.
Painting your own ombre dresser can be fun and easy. Give this technique a try and you are sure to come up with something fun! Good luck with your own DIY Ombre Dresser.
Hi Stacie- this looks fantastic! I love ombre and this color is beautiful. Visiting from i heart naptime and pinning – have a happy weekend!
Thank you so much, Cindy! It was a fun project!!!
You picked a great DIY project! Awesome beautiful color and i love the Ombre effect on this! Great makeover that adds character to the room.
I ♥♥♥ the dresser, it is such a unique piece of furniture…great color, one of my favorites!
Enjoy the weekend.
I love how this turned out, I love looking at beautiful furniture makeover projects but rarely actually have a go myself, maybe one day (as this is very tempting to try out) in the meantime there is always pinterest to save all these gorgeous ideas!
I really love your Ombre Dresser and how it looks. This would be a great way to make bedroom dressers stand out and look so fresh and new. I have an old dresser that I need to do this to. Thanks for the idea, and I am going to look at Target’s paint.
That is very pretty. I have never heard of this style of painting before. I like the dresser you choose too.
Your ombre dresser is just beautiful! I have pinned this to my crafty furniture board! I saw it over at Happiness is Homemade’s link party. I would love it if you would stop by and share it at my very first link party! http://celebrateanddecorate.com/celebrate-it-sunday-link-party-1/
I love this look and have a piece it would look great on. I love the colors you chose.
This dresser looks great! I love ombre colors!

I stopped by from Inspiration Monday.
so fun, love the turquoise color shades.
Ohhh I love the colors! Great job!
I love everything about this dresser! I wish it was hanging out in my house. The blues are just beautiful! I hope you’ll share this project over at Motivational Monday this week: http://makingitinthemitten.blogspot.com/2015/06/motivational-monday-june-14th.html
What a wonderfully useful chest… and it is so beautiful after your transformation. 🙂
I think my favorite part of this project was the knob effect. How clever to use two different types! You kept the funky thing going.

This turned out just beautiful! Blue is my favorite color, so this grabbed my attention right away. PINed it, and will be featuring it at the Friday Frenzy party tonight. Thanks so much for sharing with us, and I can’t wait to see what you bring to the next party.

I love it! The colors came out georeous! I just did the same thing with my daughters room, not ombre but used a couple shades of same color. I bought samples too, to mix with the white. $ tip- I only paid $3 at Lowe’s for 8 oz. It was Olympia and Valspar.
I saw this @ CreativityUnleashed. Pinned and followed.
I am loving this furniture project and would love to share it on my weekend features post with all credit back to you. It’s just gorgeous. Hope that’s ok 🙂
WOW that Is stunning, I love how you made it “OMBRE”
you have a true talent!!!!!!!!!!
I love that you could buy a dresser at a thrift store and then make it look this good!
I’m in love with this! Thank you for sharing this with us! Pinned and tweeted! I hope to see you at tonight’s party. We are always so impressed with your creations and can’t wait to see them! Lou Lou Girls
What a beautiful idea! I’d love to be able to do this to my current boring looking drawers!
This dresser is absolutely gorgeous!
This is beautiful! I wish I could talk myself more into being crafty but I feel like my stuff would never turn out that pretty, lol. It’s awesome that Target carries paint in a sample size- so convenient!
Stacie- I love this! Great color choice! Thanks for linking up at The Handmade Hangout- I will be featuring you on my blog this week when the new linky goes live today at 6pm ET. Hope to see you there!

I loved the gradient and the color, it looks very delicate. I’m going to suggest it to my brother for the furniture in my nephew’s room.
