Make A Simple IKEA Dresser Gorgeous DIY

Take a plain IKEA dresser and make it your own.  This project is Asian inspired but if you follow the basic instructions your final result can be whatever you want it to be.  Fabric can be used to decorate the face of the drawers, paint a geometric pattern, or a faux marble finish.  Thanks to Design Manifest for a great idea.

I’ve been tinkering with my favorite Ikea cabinet again.  I thought the two Rast cabinets fit so nicely into into my TV nook, but the style and color were all wrong.  So I bought a new set.  Crazy?  Maybe, but at $30 a pop, I can afford to get my hack on.
Obviously my version is less ornate than my inspiration cabinet.  I decided I wanted it cleaner with just a hint of decorative brassy bling.  I’m pumped about them in my nook- they are interesting but not over the top.  Plus, the black lacquer is the perfect base for a space that used to seem top-heavy.
