Megan’s IKEA Transformation


I love this email that reader Megan sent to me. I totally love what she did and I’m dying to try it! Thanks for sharing, Megan!!


Hi Jenny,

I absolutely love your blog, it’s great! I just found you yesterday after linking to you from Project Nursery. I loved your IKEA table idea, I’ve been thinking about doing the same thing and I was glad to know I wasn’t crazy for even thinking of it. I was considering using wallpaper to get the crocodile affect, I’m pretty sure I’ve seen crocodile wallpaper anyway. In fact I did a similar project recently that I wanted to share with you after I saw your IKEA table post.

We got a new TV that we’re going to mount on the wall and I was looking for storage for underneath it, I found this chest of drawers that I loved, but it was way too much for us…

So instead I used IKEA Hemnes dressers and created a similar look using wallpaper to cover the fronts of the drawers….

I use this one to store our 2 year old’s toys.

Anyway, thanks for the great reads and ideas. I’m sure I’ll be writing you soon to see if you can help me figure out my breakfast nook ;)



P.S. Megan mentioned to me in a later email that she bought the short dresser on ebay and was able to reuse knobs from old furniture and saved a lot of cash. I’ve seen lots of Hemnes dressers on Craig’s List too, so check there first if you’re interested (like me) in copying Megan’s look.

What did you think?

  1. Megan’s dressers look fantastic! Must be a trend somehow..I just returned from my mother-in-law’s, and she had used scrapbook paper she found for mere pennies to reface a chest of drawers in her guest room. Very cute!
