Built In Dresser for Nursery


Used a PAX Wardrobe, BRIMNES Dresser and an Old BILLY Book Case to built a custom built-in wardrobe/dresser for a nursery. This plus a custom floating desk I did for my office was my first attempted reno project so it didn’t turn out perfect but I am happy with the final result. IkeaHackers sure did offer a lot of inspiration and helped motivate me to do this.





I basically tried to find two IKEA units that would fit the area I was working with that worked that had the same style. I built a based, frame and then pop the units in. I then added some trim and baseboards and that’s it.

I used an old BILLY bookcase to do the shelves to fill in the triangle space. Took me a while since I never had done something like this before but had fun doing it!

VIKA OLEBY, except better…
Thank you for an incredible year (and why I am heart broken … )

    Love this! Any idea what color paint you used to match the dressers so perfectly? Any suggestion on how to get such a great match for that

    More pics! What did you do to finish around the IKEA pieces? What were you using above the dresser to fill out the area with the shelves?

      He said he used an old Billy bookshelf above the dresser and the pics seem to show trim and drywall to finish around the Ikea pieces.
