Maggie’s IKEA MALM dresser was super functional but pretty plain, so she got creative and gave it a budget makeover that adds plenty of glam style.

Holy Hollywood Regency! Maggie used overlays to create contrast on the drawers and, as for those cool knobs, she really went all out.

From Maggie:

The knobs are standard stock from Lowe’s, but for big impact I used a plumbing flange to really make them stand out. I checked all departments for something that might suit my needs and hit the jackpot in plumbing. I scored these flanges for $1.63 each. The knobs were $1.32. That’s big impact for less than $3 a knob.
