How to Transform an Ikea Cabinet

Before and After: From Cookie Cutter to Bespoke Design


In the June 2011 issue of Elle Decoration, one very nondesigner piece of furniture was turned into something beyond gorgeous.

Starting with an Ikea Konsmo Wardrobe didn't seem that promising. This boxy, boring piece doesn't have much going for it — except for the fact that it's a perfectly blank canvas to decorate upon. Want to see the amazing transformation? Keep reading!

 

 

 

Beautiful, isn't it? You could get a similar effect by papering the panels of the wardrobe with chinoiserie wallpaper that's been cut to fit. Since Ikea's furniture comes unassembled, it would make this project even easier to attempt.

@zippy99 maybe poster #3 just wants to use this wallpaper for a different project (not the ikea cabinet project posted above), just like you have used apartmenttherapy's wallpaper resources for your own projects...

It's beautiful as is, I agree... but the point is that you can be creative and PERSONALIZE boring items. So I find it hilarious that posetr #3 needs to know how to find that EXACT!!! wallpaper LOL. BTW, if you go on Apartmenttherapy.com, and look in resources, you can find all kinds of sources for amazing wallpaper.

Wow, this IS beautiful. It's nice to see something some personalized come out of the most generic brand available.
