Recently, I decided to change up my bedroom and go for a Hollywood glam look. To start out I wanted to re-paint the walls and most all of my furniture. I had the idea to paint my birch color Ikea Aneboda dresser white, but I wasn't sure if this was possible since it is made of non-wood material. I started searching the web for Ikea hacks and came across one I really liked on Design*Sponge . They painted the birch dresser a dark color and in place of the clear panels, they installed fabric panels, which was a really nice touch. The finished product came out beautifully!
I primed and painted the dresser and found a really nice faux ceiling tile paintable wallpaper at Lowes, that I was able to spray paint metallic silver for the panel inserts. Lastly, I changed out the old wooden drawer pulls, with inexpensive brushed silver hardware.
I could not have asked for better end results, I absolutely love my "new" dresser!
