Ikea Malm Dresser Hack

Published by at 06:00

Hacking Computers? Not a good idea, unless you are a teenager saving the world in a 80's movie then thumbs up. Ikea Hacking? Best idea ever! Basically there is a wicked sight that offers inspirational ideas on how to take your cookie cutter flat pack particle board furniture and turn into a unique upscale looking piece of flat pack particle board furniture.

Recently I have made it my mission to add more mid centery m odern pieces to our houses. I am finally feeling almost like a gorwn up and I would like my furniture to reflect this. But this stuff is expensive and not that easy to find in my budget so Ikea keeps luring me back in. The malm system especially. I pretty much love every peice. 

So here is my idea. I want to hack one of my malm dressers but the question is do I use an overlay from this genius company O'verlay (
I found out about them from the super cute blog Posh meets Pavement), or do I paint them using a stencil from this fantastic place Cutting Edge Stencils. I would love your opinion. 

This is the Malm I want to hack.

This an image of an O'verlays malm. 

And this is an idea for the stencil.  

What do you think?

Thanks for your help.
