I have been busy this month trying to finish up some of the projects on my to do list before school starts. As I was working on my daughters room, I decided to paint her dresser to give it a new look. Her IKEA MALM dresser was very functional but a little boring.
After a little bit of paint, some new knobs and overlays, it looks like a completely different piece of furniture.
I ordered the overlays from here. There are so many options for different IKEA furniture, you can truly customize your own furniture and make it one of a kind.
I found the knobs at home depot, I believe I paid about $30 for all 8.
If you want an approximate cost breakdown:
Poly seal: $8.00
Off course I already the dresser from a few years back, so it cost me $82 to refinish the dresser.
I bought hi-gloss paint with built in primer at home depot, I used a small roller and gave it 2 coats.
After the paint was dry, I sealed it with two coats of polyurethane, which I also applied with a small roller.
The next day after my dresser was dry, I measured and drilled my holes and put in my hardware. Afterwards I superglued my overlays on.
Have you done any IKEA Hacks lately? Leave a link below, I would love to see your project :)
