ikea mini drawers

A few months ago I spotted a card catalog hack from an Ikea Moppe on pinterest from The Painted Hive. The tutorial inspired me to give my old Moppe a much needed makeover! So this last month while I moved some things around in the bathroom (which is where my Moppe is and will remain) I decided it was time to finally give that old Moppe a more sophisticated upgrade. Your all growns up and your all growns up!

Taking Kristine’s advice I flipped those drawers around and rounded the edges. I painted the entire Moppe gloss black, gave it a little distressing and got small flower pulls on sale from Anthropologie. Instead of hiding my moppe in a bathroom cabinet, I mounted it with pride to the bathroom wall. Out of all the Ikea things I have had over the years, this is by far my favorite and must useful. It’s one of the first things I purchased from Ikea many years ago and it’s still solid. It’s an awesome little set of mini drawers. K
