after fixing his daughter’s ikea fjord dresser drawers (discontinued) for the umpteenth time, mike gives up and decides to turn it into shelving.
he says, “we removed all the drawers and took the back off. then, we used the back as the bottom shelf. we hammered in some 1 by 2’s to the inside of the side panels to hold another shelf. then, we purchased cloth bins to hold our daughter’s clothes. our daughter emily picked out the colors.”
