We love a fun DIY hack and IKEA has so many possibilities to adapt furniture and accessories – the outcome only depends on your levels of skill and creativity.
Perfect for a weekend makeover and one of our all-time favourite IKEA pieces to customise is the MOPPE mini chest of drawers. The simplicity in its design opens up a whole world of adaptability – from rearranging to removing or reversing the drawers, painting, stacking, adding legs, decoupage or decorative handles – the sky is the limit with this one.
We took a trip around Pinterest to see what’s been done and were amazed at the results from all over the world! Here are our Top 10 favourites.
1. Antique patina
Small but sweet, a little textured wash is all this one took to be transformed.
2. Paper & pattern
An eclectic mix of what may be wallpaper samples combine creatively.
3. Rainbow dreams
Clever use of colour and scale sees the full colour spectrum unfold as the drawer size increases downwards.
4. The world in your hands
We love the decorative use of a world map and this is no exception. Leather drawer pulls add to the well-travelled look.
5. Hallway help
Two MOPPE units combine here to form a functional hallway console for storing and collecting daily essentials at the front door.
6. Colour crush
Washed out citrus tones combine with geometric monotones for stylish storage.
7. Age old
Close up detail shows carefully chosen handles and a deftly applied distressed paint finish. Labelling is the key to organisation.
8. Bathroom goals
MOPPE forms functional storage when stacked and adapted as a modular unit. Kept all white with paint, decor can be changed with accessories.
9. Pastel perfection
A set of hairpin feet and a pastel palette bring this little beauty to life and right into the current decor trends. New holes are drilled to camouflage away from the IKEA original.
10. Office style
Equally at home on the wall as on a desk, MOPPE appears in every room of the home, including the office.
