Simple Furniture Fix

Another little thing accomplished in my bedroom.  I bought the Hopen dresser at Ikea about 5 or 6 years ago because I liked the way it looked. Nice, right?
Except this is what it looks like once you put clothes in it. Not exactly what I want it to look like.  I guess they didn't think anyone would actually put clothes in it.

So, I finally have a fix for it and it was so simple and cheap.  Another moment where I thought, why didn't I do this sooner?  All it took was poster board cut into strips.  I found a poster board that was a silver/gray color.  It looks more like the first picture, right?


  1. What a great idea!!!! Aren't you glad you finally got that done. Crazy how we let things go forever before the lightbulb goes off in the head.

  2. It does look much nicer that way. I love how creatively your mind works Nikki.
