Super Simple Ikea + Target Makeover

I love the Hemnes collection from Ikea. We currently own 3 of the wide dressers, 1 tall dresser, 1 vanity, and this 3 drawer chest. It currently sits in our entry way, stuffed full of the kids’ crayons and coloring books. And as much as I love it, it was just looking sad. It needed a punch of something to make it more of a statement piece of furniture rather than something bland I put together out of a box.

Target was the answer! (Isn't it always?) Just a few items from their Project 62 Collection (my favorite) made all the difference. The mirror and drawer pulls glam it up year round while the accessories on top can be switched out with the seasons. This photo was taken towards the end of summer, so I've got my monstera leaves out, but it's currently decked out with pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins... from Target, of course. ☺️

  • @Holly, I have a glass top on the dresser (also sold by Ikea), which is the stripe you’re seeing in the pictures. :)

  • Is the top of the dresser painted?

  • Thank you so so much for sharing. I’m making a trip to Ikea tomorrow and I can not decide between the white and white stain 6 drawer Hemne dresser – Can I ask why and how you chose the white stain? Do you see any knicks or chips on the wood?

  • Thank you so much, Anetria! Target is the best! 😁

  • Megan, I love how simple you decorated your chest! Target always has the cutest things!
