IKEA furniture is usually seen as cheap and generic furniture, but I love IKEA furniture. It is affordable, easy to build, and customizable. From painting over furniture to adding knobs and pulls, IKEA furniture allows for custom made furniture similar to those of high end furniture stores. You can find tons of cheap, used IKEA items on Craigslist for half the price. I have been looking to some MALM dressers on craigslist for awhile since they meet the size requirement I was looking for in a nightstand/ dresser, but I realized that I did not want used and imperfect tables. I decided to buy new and add some custom pulls I bought on Etsy. Here are the supplies you will need to put the pulls on the dresser. You basically measure the holes where you would like them to be and drill! It is fairly simple and an easy fix. I have 12 pulls and did it in 2 hours but I had NUMEROUS interruptions from the kids and I tried to keep them out of the danger territory. TO make it easier, I held up a vacuum as I drilled so I woudn’t make a mess. I am such a neat freak when it comes to my bedroom! Here is a picture of the finished product? Here is a close up of the pulls. And finally, we have to have a before and after picture of course! What do you guys think??
