Dresser makeover: How to paint plaid

I would like to start by making something very clear: Flannels are life!

I have always loved flannel, but after 15 years married to a Maine lover it has taken over my life. Flannel runs deep in our family and I picked one of my several flannel shirts to draw inspiration for this dresser makeover.

Before you get overwhelmed thinking that painting plaid is too much work, I will share my mindset before I start any furniture makeover: If I love an idea, I just run with it. I go 110% every single time, regardless of how hard it might seem, because I know the end result will be worth it.

I understand painting plaid on furniture can be a big commitment. After all, there are plenty of people out there who think plaid is only for the holidays (It is not in my opinion, I love plaid in every season). But if you want to add the flannel look to your home without going overboard you can alway add plaid details to home decor, charcuterie boards, door signs and so much more. I am telling you, there is no such thing as too much plaid!

So whether you are a plaid lover or timidly introducing it to your lifestyle, read on so you can learn how to paint plaid in furniture.
