We love a fun DIY hack and IKEA has so many possibilities to adapt furniture and accessories – the outcome only depends on your levels of skill and creativity.
Perfect for a weekend makeover and one of our all-time favourite IKEA pieces to customise is the MOPPE mini chest of drawers. The simplicity in its design opens up a whole world of adaptability – from rearranging to removing or reversing the drawers, painting, stacking, adding legs, decoupage or decorative handles – the sky is the limit with this one.
We took a trip around Pinterest to see what’s been done and were amazed at the results from all over the world! Here are our Top 10 favourites.
1. Antique patina
Small but sweet, a little textured wash is all this one took to be transformed.
2. Paper & pattern
An eclectic mix of what may be wallpaper samples combine creatively.
3. Rainbow dreams
Clever use of colour and scale sees the full colour spectrum unfold as the drawer size increases downwards.
4. The world in your hands
We love the decorative use of a world map and this is no exception. Leather drawer pulls add to the well-travelled look.
5. Hallway help
Two MOPPE units combine here to form a functional hallway console for storing and collecting daily essentials at the front door.
