Use This IKEA Hack To Stylishly Disguise A Dog Crate As Furniture
You can make your dog's room match your own by turning the Ikea MALM dresser into a five-star suite for your dog with a little bit of woodworking.
For this DIY from Lisa of Garrison Street Design Studio, you'll need the 3-drawer MALM dresser, additional wood, fasteners, and a few different saws, among other tools.
This dresser measures 31 ½ inches by 30 ¾ inches and therefore is most suitable for smaller dogs. Also, if your dog often chews
up wood, this probably
won't work for them.
Remove the drawers and drawer sliders from the MALM dresser, then reinforce the hollow bottom with some sturdy wood and top it with plywood to create a floor.
Fill in any nail holes and decorate the space how you wish. Create the doors with wood slats, then paint or stain them, add some latches, and attach them to the dresser.
