Before & After: Ikea Malm Upholstered Drawer Makeover

Before & After: Ikea Malm Upholstered Drawer Makeover

It takes a special kind of artistic vision to transform a plain black three-drawer dresser into the centerpiece of your child's bedroom. It takes something else altogether to make that transformation happen while eight months pregnant! Kylie has both the vision and that something else and pulled off the transformation brilliantly.

Amazing work! After countless inquiries from visitors to her Wallfry blog Kylie decided to provide a step-by-step tutorial on her upholstered drawer makeover. She used the Ikea Malm, but you could try this on any similar set of drawers. She assures us that it is a quick and easy project that she was able to complete in one evening. While we think it may take some of us a wee bit longer, it is certainly a makeover worth trying.

And if you are wondering about the very cool art above the dresser, it is also Kylie's handiwork, available at her Etsy shop.
