IKEA Hack: Dotted Chest of Drawers

Posted by on


Enhance a simple piece of flat-pack furniture to create a stunning impact in a minimalist environment.
Here's what you need:
- Adhesive film in assorted colors
- Chest of drawers (such as IKEA Malm)
- Circle cutter
- Pencil
- Straight edge

Step 1

Cut the adhesive film into 5 cm circles with a circle cutter.

Step 2

With a pencil and a straight edge, draw a grid onto the chest of drawers to help position the dots.

Step 3

Remove the film's backing paper and stick the dots to the chest of drawers one by one. Choose the colors randomly. It looks best if you use at least three different colors to avoid unwanted clustering.

Step 4
