This is a DIY that I wanted to do a long time ago, since I saw a gorgeous vintage credenza with gold accents in a nursery. I have been looking for a similar one for a long time but couldn’t find anything nice and affordable. When I decided to do my bedroom makeover, I thought that it would be the perfect project to finally give it a try. Then (and because obviously I love Ikea!) I thought I could use their Malm chest of drawers and some gold contact paper I had at home to make my own. Here is what you need for this DIY:
– Ikea Malm dresser
– Gold contact paper roll
– Cutter blade
It’s a very easy and quick DIY. All you have to do is cut some gold contact paper and put it on the middle sections of your dresser.
For the middle part, the best thing is to unscrew the drawers rails while you do it so you can perfectly stick the paper.
And for the horizontal parts, just wrap the contact paper all around so it will stick perfectly and last longer. Then trim the excess.
Once all the parts are covered you can put back the drawers. It told you it was easy and quick!
