Ikea Repair

Ikea is a lot of things--affordable, innovative, fun, crazy, good for building assembly skills.  There's one thing it's not good for and that's heirloom quality furniture. I have 2 beech-colored Ikea dressers. I'm not that fond of them, but I've decided to live with them until I find a dresser that I like and can afford. Well, for the past several--oh--months, one of the drawers on my beech "Malm" dresser wasn't shutting. The bottom and back had sort of warped. I finally got around to fixing it this weekend. I repaired it using a complicated technique called "duct tape the hell out of it."


Broken Drawer




Duct tape to the rescue!


And voila--drawer's fixed!

  1. Thanks for the comment! Ikea's good for some things..but I'm trying to get sturdier furniture now.


Since you have great taste in blogs, I don't think I have to tell you to be nice to each other...and don't spam me. Thanks!
