After my cheap formica closet broke down under the weight of my clothes (yes, that happened), I took my old nursery furniture (which I got new when I was about 5) out of the attic. It's 16 year old, sturdy solid pine IKEA furniture the likes of which IKEA doesn't make anymore these days. If anything, this closet and dresser won't collapse on me!


(Please don't mind the mess, this picture was taken pretty soon after moving house, I've cleaned up since. x.x)

It's really good quality furniture and I don't have the budget for anything new, however... I'm not a country style/shabby chic sort of person, and as it's so obviously part of a set it gives off a slightly childish vibe to me. (though the latter might also be due to memories of kiddie!me)
Any ideas on how I can liven this up? Could I decorate the surroundings somehow, or would I have to paint/stain/... the furniture itself? (The walls are painted white and have to stay like that because my parents don't want to overpaint my room when I move out.)
