Fancy up an Ikea Dresser

2 Materials
10 Minutes

This past Sunday, my SIL and I made an ikea date! I was able to purchase the Hemnes dresser in a dark gray stain, it’s 63 inches long and only $279! Such a steal. I wanted to make it look like nicer quality so I switched out the knobs and I’m obsessed! I ordered the knobs off amazon which was another steal. It’s a 10 minute project, although assembling the dresser was kind of time consuming! Take a look!

To get more of an idea if I was on the right track, I did a poll on Instagram and it was pretty obvious that people loved the brass knobs more than the black ones that came with it. The decision was made for me!

Here is a photo of the dresser before changing out the knobs.
