IKEA Wardrobe Update
It’s Power Tool Time again!!! This month’s theme is one of my favorites… modifying something with power tools! I love taking something basic and making it fantastic,, like this basic IKEA Wardrobe that I updated. Paint, molding and a few other supplies turned this wardrobe into a Pottery Barn inspired makeover.
IKEA Wardrobe Update
My daughter needed more storage in her room. This basic IKEA wardrobe was a cheap solution, but was very boring. I adore the Pottery Barn wardrobes in the Pottery Barn Kids catalogs, but the price is too steep for my budget – so I gave this wardrobe a makeover. (affiliate links included for your convenience, more info here)
Supplies needed for IKEA Wardrobe Makeover:
I started by painting the wardrobe with some crisp, white paint. It took 2 coats to give it the look I wanted.
Then I attached the door mirror using liquid nails.
The mirror already had trim around it so I left it alone.
Then I decided on the size of cork I wanted to place on the left side. I trimmed it down and used liquid nails to adhere the cork onto the wardrobe door.
Then I measured and cut down the molding to fit around the cork. I’ll want to use a miter saw or a miter box to get those angled cuts.
Such a BIG difference! She had fun decorating her cork board.
