Filling a chest of drawers (aka dresser) with flowers is a fun and eclectic way to create a real statement piece. For this project, you can use any dresser - it doesn't have to be old or unused, as no damage will come to it. I chose a white one, as I really wanted the bright colors to pop. This would be great for a party, and I could imagine several of these at an eclectic event. It would also make an amazing surprise for a close friend or relative (so long as you are willing to sneak in and hijack one of their dressers). It may seem like a lot of flowers, but the total cost was around $40. It is also a relatively quick project, taking only 15-20 minutes (once my husband and I hauled the dresser upstairs). Give it a try!
Flowers: dahlia, zinnia, lisianthus, snapdragon, plum, garden annuals
I really love the color of this dahlia, and think they are gorgeous as they are opening
I added these colorful knobs - much better than the plain white ones
A three-drawer chest works best for this, and any vases you desire for the surface
The bottom two rows are oh-so-simple - just keep the flowers in their pots/containers. You can put down a shallow tray, or make one with aluminum foil if you are worried about moisture leakage
For the top row, shallow rectangular vases can be used. The top drawer is only opened about 2 inches - just enough for the dahlias to stick out
So bright, and so much fun!
