Paint and switch handles

You can also convert your dresser into another unit if needed – a bedside table, home bar, changing table, console table, or something else.
There are plenty of other hacks too: you can cover the dresser with inlays, you can use wall panels as decor, you can freshen up the look with removable decals, you can uncouple the drawers and even cover them with leather or fabric! The simplest hack is to change handles or buttons and don’t do anything else – this won’t take much time and anyone can do it. Your piece can get a whole new look – it can resemble a library cabinet, apothecary cabinet, vintage chest, or any other desired piece. Mix up different types of hacking, decor and details, reuse and freshen up. You get your own unique item from a simple IKEA chest of drawers!
