We love a good Ikea Hack. Transforming and changing simple furniture into something that looks a bit more high end are projects we love working on. Some projects can be more intense than others, but this Ikea Hack Tarva Dresser with fabric covered drawers is not too difficult.
The 3-drawer pine Tarva dresser from Ikea is the perfect sized small dresser for many spaces in a home. The natural pine color is not my favorite. So I added a few layers of white stain. This really took the yellow color from the wood.
Now for the drawers… the show stopper! You can find the full tutorial over on hunker.com. Can you guess what the fabric is? The new dresser drawer pulls add such an elevated look, don’t you think? This dresser comes with basic pine pulls. The brass looks so much more sophisticated.

This Ikea Besta unit was totally upgraded with cabinet doors, wood top and legs to become a mudroom bench. We also made an upholstered pad hung with leather straps. You will never believe the fabric we used for the upholstered pad. It is also from Ikea.
A little different form of an Ikea hack – this one for the kitchen. If you haven’t seen the glass jars with bamboo lids at Ikea, you have to go check them out. This post shows how we hand lettered labels on the jars.
