I decided to makeover the HEMNES chest because I am redecorating my bedroom. And I wanted to have only one style in the bedroom. So I took my old dresser and modified it to suit the style of my other furniture (bed, wardrobe etc.) IKEA items used: HEMNES chest of 3 drawers before Materials and tools Brushed spruce boardsVinyl glue and a brushDrillScrews and screwdriverMiter sawJigsawOrbital sanderMeasuring tapePencil Ruler What I did was measure the chest and layout the pieces of boards to cover the entire HEMNES chest. Then I cut the spruce boards to size. Related: The Brassy Bureau: A MCM style wooden chest of drawers I used a bit of vinyl glue to set them in place. Then I screwed the boards in, over the HEMNES chest. All done! It looks entirely different and matches my room. How long did it take? I did it in my free time and it took a few days. What was the hardest part about this hack? The hardest for this hack was to cut the wood straight. Looking back, would you have done it differently? If I would do another chest makeover like this, probably I would put the screws in the opposite direction, from the inside, for a better look.
