Painted Ikea Furniture

May 5, 2011

Like many of you, our home is full of a few Ikea staples. You know, classics like the Malm dressers and Expedit cubes. Recently, I have been thinking about how I can remake a few of those pieces. With a little research, I found that others have “hacked” their trusty Ikea pieces and made them into beautiful furniture. I love the idea of using wallpaper to add pattern and texture to the dresser. And Anthropologie drawer pulls would be awesome! If you own Ikea furniture, what are some tips for making them one-of-a-kind?

Update: Check out how I painted my Ikea malm dresser to look like a mid-century modern piece of furniture!

It’s so cool to see what other people do with Ikea stuff!! We have a lot of Ikea furniture, almost all of it purchased for cheap on Craiglist–nice because then we don’t have to assemble it! I love the little Rast dresser–we painted one just recently and it looks great as a nightstand in the guest room!! http://www.adventuresindressmaking.com/2012/10/weve-painted-lot-of-furniture-lately.html
