Hi, I thought I'd share pics of my recently refurbished Ikea dresser.  Since I don't have much experience (not to mention space/materials) refurbishing furniture, I thought I would spruce up my Ikea dresser with wood patterned contact paper.  This material allowed me the option of ripping it off if I didn't like the result.  Instead, I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.  I'm toying with the idea of decoupaging contact paper and then applying that to another Ikea style bookshelf.  For now, here are the fruits of my first contact paper refurbishment:

Before: (Apologies for the bad pic but it's all I could find.  I also did the molding which was easy and made a huge impact!)

It's too bad contact paper doesn't come in lots of various designs cause that really is a great way to renew furniture.

Also, I noticed the molding immediately! I love it.
