ikea furniture colour range is not the best in the world, admittedly. unless you’re okay with white, silver, black, oak, beech and birch, you just have to diy if you need some other hue. andrew painted the hensvik chest of drawers a pretty baby blue for his daughter’s nursery.
“the colors of the nursery are yellow and blue, so i roughed up the vinyl on the chest of drawers and painted it two coats of Tahoe Blue paint and then added some larger ceramic pulls that i found at lee valley hardware (great prices and amazing stuff). the chest of drawers are currently working double duty as a changing table with a pad on the top and clothes storage in the drawers.”
