ikea fira mini chests get hot new looks

i’ve always loved these ikea fira mini chests. though i have no use for them – i find them too deep for jewelry, too small for stationery – but still i love them because they seem so infinite in possibilities. and full of potential prettiness under crafty fingers. i knew it was only a matter of time before i found a nice hack on the mini chests. true enough.

here’s melisaur‘s take on them. love the pasted on panels of patterns. and it’s probably a lot easier than painting. not only that, three months down the road, should you tire of them, just tear them off and paste on the pattern du jour.
