His IKEA dresser is all finished. We found black knobs at IKEA for $1.99 (SCORE!) that we swapped out with the ones it had before. The ones it came with had nothing to grab onto.
I love how it looks now. Simple, and clean just how I like it.
Total cost for entire dresser, knobs, and organizers was: $41 !!!
Dresser: Found on local FB Swap + Shop Group : $30
Drawer Organizers: Dollar Tree: $1 ea x 9
Knobs: IKEA $1.99
I have organized all the drawers and love how they look. Granted newborn clothes are TINY and I will never be able to fit so many clothes in here as I can now but for now I am going to soak up every little bodysuit rolled up.
I originally had my heart set on the Hemmes IKEA white dresser but I just couldn’t fathom spending nearly $250 on a dresser that would most likely get scratched, drawn on, and who knows what else. Fortunately I found this smaller IKEA dresser for only $30 on a local fb swap/shop group. I somehow lugged it up a flight of stairs myself and got it all set up in the nursery. Probably shouldn’t have but I was to excited to just keep it in the car until hubby came home. haha.
(that nightstand was a 90% off target find at $6.99!!!)
I knew I wanted the dresser super organized for those sleepless nights so we wouldn’t be rummaging around trying to find what we’re looking for. At first I was going to buy the IKEA cloth drawer organizers but I stopped Dollar Tree while doing some errands just for the heck of it and found these! They are 11.5 x 8.5″.
The best part is the bottom part comes out and you can use it as a divider! JACKPOT! So I bought 9 of these cloth organizers which fit the dresser PERFECT. You seriously NEVER know what you can find at the DollarTree. I had no idea I would find something that fit so perfectly.
Seeing as this is our first little one I am sure I will switch things around as baby Rubeo grows but for now this is how I’ve got it all organized.
I will be switching out the knobs soon. They are super small and almost impossible to grab. Thinking something black…
