    7 Ikea Dresser Hacks Inspired by High-End Designs

    Your dresser serves as one of the main focal points of your bedroom—and not just because it’s where you stumble every morning to rustle up something to wear. The design of your dresser can show off your personality and set the tone for the space.

    While the dressers you’ll find at Ikea are certainly affordable and functional, they’re hardly statement-making. There’s only so much you can say about a piece of furniture that thousands of other people have, after all.

    Thankfully, the internet has our backs. Get inspired by these #ikeahacks that prove the true potential of a bland particle board dresser. Even if you consider yourself only mildly handy, we guarantee there’s a DIY project here for everyone.

    1. Pick your color

    The Malm dresser ($199) comes in a variety of stains, but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with those offerings. This savvy DIY-er turned the whole thing blue, and added leather drawer pulls for some extra flair. The changes are simple, but they give it a whole new look.

    2. Knobs make all the difference

    The Tarva dresser ($179) is about as basic as it gets, but it doesn’t have to stay that way. A simple stain and some crystal knobs completely transformed this dresser, and blue paint inside the drawers give it a surprise pop of color.

    3. Go rustic with wood stain and drawer pulls

    The Tarva dresser strikes again—this time with a mix of stain and paint. White paint on the top and bottom neutralize the piece and help it blend in with the room, while brightly stained wood on the drawer faces make it stand out. And rustic-style drawer pulls make it look like something you’d never find at Ikea.

    4. A new look from top to bottom

    Since the Hemnes dresser ($279) comes prestained, the first step in this #ikeahack is to strip all that away—so it doesn’t matter at all what color you get. The top piece is given a natural look with an oak stain, and cup drawer pulls are stylishly modern. Make it your own by choosing whatever color you want for the rest.

    5. Go sleek and modern

    Our old friend the Tarva dresser isn’t even recognizable after this extensive makeover! The drawer faces got a fresh coat of white paint, but the big change comes from the hardware—gold handlebar drawer pulls that turn it into a sleek and modern masterpiece.

    6. An idea to file away

    This six-drawer version of the Malm dresser was functional to begin with, but a new coat of paint and some file cabinet drawer pulls give it a whole new look that could fit into your office—or any room in your house.

    7. Paint a picture

    If you’re truly artistically talented and a new stain or fancy drawer pulls don’t do enough to make your dresser your own, go all the way out and paint a picture across your chest of drawers.
