It's rare when the words IKEA and Dubai appear in one sentence. Dubai, with its reputation for luxury and modern excess, hardly calls to mind budget furniture. However, UAE resident Jacqui wanted to insert a least a hint of glamour into this old Blue Hemnes dresser, and bring a little glitz to her master bedroom. Here's her hack...

She started by painting the dresser a dramatic jet black, then added a nailhead trim around all the edges. Spray painted gold knobs complete the look.

Jacqui recommends following the edge of the dresser, which helps keep the trim line straight. Otherwise, she says, it just takes a bit of time to complete.

Thanks Jacqui for the inexpensive and easy project idea!
