DIY: Malm Dresser by IKEA

Oh my gosh! I spotted this DIY project for the Malm dresser by IKEA on Pinterest today (thanks to Noor) and loved it. I discovered it was done by Pinja over at the Pinja Colada blog which is based out of Helsinki. What a sweet idea, I love this for a kid’s room!

    Thanks for sharing this one! I have been following your blog for a few years now. I am an American living in Hannover with my German husband. We are expecting our first child in just a few weeks! I am so sick of Ikea! Though I love it at the same time. All furniture in Germany seems to be very flimsy. It is really difficult to find anything made of hardwood! Anyway, we still don’t have a set of drawers for the future kid but this idea may send me back to Ikea. Thanks again!

    @Alessandra – Hi I live in Hannover to – where are you? I don’t think the furniture in Germany is flimsy, maybe it is where you are shopping?

    This is really adorable! Sometimes I feel like I’ve seen it all at Ikea and then the simplest touch makes it all new again…

    We’ve just had a weekend of building Ikea bedroom furniture and have been really inspired to add a personal touch to the units

    I’ve always liked how IKEA makes simple, well-designed furniture affordable.
