Ikea Hack-Bedroom Dresser

Hello all. Some time ago we bought a chest of drawers from Ikea (love that store!), similar to this one

except in a much paler wood.

We wanted a beachy, whitewashed look, so we gave it two coats of white paint –  one coat was way too light. We had some blue paint leftover from our patio outdoor set makeover (you can catch up on that amazing transformation here), so we painted the drawer knobs that colour.

To ensure that hubby didn’t get his fingers full of blue paint and also to ensure that he didn’t leave messy fingerprints all over the knobs, he made this very clever contraption to hold them in place while he painted them.

Just a piece of wood with nails hammered in, turned upside down and the knobs stuck on the nails. Ingenious yes? I can almost hear the more experienced handy-persons here, yawning, but it’s new to me 🙂

Aaanyway, this is the end result of his labours
