23rd April 2022

A SAVVY woman has been inundated with praise after revealing how she gave her boring Ikea drawers a very modern makeover.

The woman, who goes by the acronym studiotwentyseven on TikTok,shared a short clip where she can be seen hard at work sanding down the Hemnes chest of drawers, which retails at £229.

She explains: "Sanded the whole unit and painted two coats of Fusion Mineral Paint in Ash."

After delicately painting around the sides, she can then be seen applying paint using a paint-roller.

She continues: "Stained the drawer fronts a dark walnut colour and gave them a couple of coats of satin varnish."

The DIY enthusiast captioned the post: "Love this IKEA hack I did on this Hemnes dresser."
