Ann and her husband bought two IKEA Aneboda dressers to hold their mounting collection of baby items but once assembled they decided they were not fans of the translucent fronts that revealed everything inside. What to do? Add a bit of fabric Ann decided.

Voila! A quick, easy and affordable fix. Ann chose a Joel Dewberry fabric (Herringwood in Lake) and tackled this project in an afternoon "even with my 30-minute belly adjustment period" for an outlay of about $20. If you want to give this a try, Ann wrote up instructions on her blog The Gravy Train (where she also writes about cooking, travel and crafts!).
