IKEA Hack: Dressing Up a Hemnes Dresser
By Our Home from Scratch on Feb 11, 2013
So even though I’ve already mentally started work on our sitting room built-ins, we obviously aren’t done with our daughter’s bedroom. We still want to add some decor and personalize the room a bit. My wife Lisa has several little projects planned, one of which we were able to knock out in about ten minutes—adding new pink drawer pulls on our Hemnes dresser.
We love the Hemnes line. It’s clean, bright, and pretty versatile. However, we thought we could dress it up a bit and maybe make it a little more girly.
Lisa spotted some pink, clear drawer pulls on sale at Target and quickly snatched them up.
Most drawer pulls come out pretty easily.
The new pulls came with their own screws and were roughly the same size as the old hardware.
Installed, they change the feel of the dresser a bit.
We also made sure we had enough pulls for the night stand.
Not too bad, right? Plus it was cheap. I think the pulls were around $3 for a pack of six. Don’t quote me on that.
