Ikea is a GREAT place to find inexpensive furniture. I’m sure you have seen some of the amazing hacks to dress up just about everything from Ikea? Well, I have a quick hack of my own and it only cost about $5!
My daughter needed a new dresser for her room, so I bought this Tarva dresser for about $80. I added some paint details, that you can find HERE, but I also changed the leg profile. I’m not a fan of the original straight, tall leg. I debated on cutting them off and replacing them with bun feet but, honestly, that would have been a pain and cost me quite a bit of money. So check out the solution to the ugly leg… 😉
Supplies: screen moulding, finishing nails, water
