This Is The Secret To Making Your IKEA HEMNES Nightstand Look More Expensive

Furniture is an integral part of any design when planning your interior. If you're looking to achieve a high-end-looking bedroom space, upgrading your nightstands could be just the touch you need if you're on a budget. One hack, shared by one user @makingitwithabby on TikTok, shows exactly how you can do so with an IKEA HEMNES nightstand, helping to transform your bedroom into a luxurious sleeping space. Upon completing the transformation, you should be left with an elegant nightstand that can rival much of its competition. What more could you ask for?

Not only will this hack help you save a ton of money, but it will also help completely transform your space. Of course, it requires a nifty bit of DIY — just like most furniture hacks on TikTok. Luckily, it's not too difficult. All you need to do is gather up the necessary items, and you're ready to go. Soon, you should have a new nightstand you can feel proud of. 

You need an IKEA HEMNES nightstand

For this hack, the IKEA HEMNES nightstand will be essential. Without it, you won't be able to do this hack at all. Other items you will need include trim and dowels, some cauk, a small paint spray gun, a screwdriver, sandpaper, some primer, and your paint of choice for the color. To begin, all you need to do is remove the fronts of the drawers. Leaving a small amount of space, attach some trim around the outline. Once this is set, you can go ahead and add some wooden dowels with some glue. Leave this to set before adding some caulk around the inside of your trim. For the rest of the draw, you need to prep it before painting it with your color of choice with your spray paint gun. Your best shot is selecting a shade that compliments your interior. Now, you just need to wait one day for it to dry.

When the drying stage is complete, you can go ahead and add some new handles and nightstand legs of your choice. This is where your screwdriver will come in handy, depending on what you use. One reason this hack works so well is the added touches, which helps make it look so unique. New handles and an individualistic design add a touch of a "high-end" vibe to the piece, helping your space to look fresh and elegant. Of course, you can customize it however you wish.
