Customize Your Ikea Malm Dresser With TikTok’s Simple DIY
The Ikea Malm is a six-drawer dresser with flat drawers and a sleek design, ideal for DIY projects — for instance, give it a subtle pop with some gold peel-and-stick paper.
Like TikTok user @kristinapeer, you can upgrade your Ikea Malm by wrapping the peel-and-stick paper around the bars that stop the drawers to give it a stylish look.
For a quick upgrade to a standard furniture piece, cut strips of paper wider than the bars behind the drawers, remove the backing, and adhere the paper, smoothing it out as you go.
The hack is also quite inexpensive. The Malm dresser costs $299.99, while a metallic contact paper from Amazon costs $8.99 for a sheet that is 17.71 inches by 78.7 inches.
With a variety of peel-and-stick contact paper available, you have nearly limitless possibilities for upgrading your Malm according to your taste, theme, and interior design.
