Dresser Makeover 2x Ideas

We just scored 2 dressers off of Craigslist; one was 15 bucks and the other was 30. ONe will go in the kids' room and one will wind up in ours. I have a few ideas of what to do with them, but here's what came from perusing Pinterest for inspiration: Love the lacquered kelley green, though I'd have to completely redecorate if I wanted it in my house ;)

A more subtle green:

Ombre- really "in" right now and just kiddish enough without being too babyish...this might be my front runner:

Or something like this....when the kids outgrow the cutesy, it can just be painted over:

The wallpapered look would be quick and cheap, but I'd feel guilty for papering over solid wood. I'd do it laminate in an instant, though!

I love the white with natural wood. Might be going with something like this for our dresser:

Fun numbering:

But, I also love my brownish greys:

It would probably be helpful if my tastes weren't so eclectic! We'll be prettying up our new dressers this next week and I'll show you how they turn out...
