If you’ve stopped by here recently you know I’m working on a Craft Room Makeover, which means I need lots of storage.
My color scheme is pink, gold and white. I’ve waited 30 years to have a craft room, so I am going totally girly and glam.
I picked up an IKEA Moppe Mini Chest Of Drawers to keep on my desk and store small supplies that I use often. You can check out my plans for my craft room makeover here.

The IKEA Moppe comes in a couple different sizes and can also be stacked. It is very reasonably priced at about $17 for the smaller size.
You can buy a similar one here. As I am going with a color scheme of pink, gold and white, I knew those were the colors I wanted to use for this IKEA Moppe hack.

I started by painting the base of the Moppe in pink and then started on the drawers.
I am kind of an impatient crafter and not too concerned about things being perfect, so I did not tape off the drawers.
But you can certainly tape off the angles if you like.
Once I had the gold and white painted, I went in and added pink to the center of each drawer.
I just went back in with a q-tip and corrected any mistakes and made it somewhat even.
I decided to add little feet to the Moppe and used old wood knobs that I had in my stash. I gave them a quick coat of white paint and like how it gives it a finished look.
I’m really happy with how it turned out. I definitely plan to add another one for additional storage.
