:MYKEA

02.08.11

My wife and I own a lot… I mean a lot of furniture from the Swedish put-it-together-yourself  juggernaut also known as IKEA.

IKEA is great when you have an entire apartment to fill, a taste for minimalistic furniture and a very small budget. Moving into adulthood however, we have slowly replaced our beloved veneered particle board with actual furniture. But in the meantime, I have found myself endlessly fascinated with IKEA-hacks posted all over the internet. One of my favorites is from a site called mykea.

The site provides a wide range of ‘design covers’ to customize your ‘furniture’ and even encourages you to get in on the act. The MALM dresser above is my first stab at a cover. I thought there was something kind of funny about labeling drawers typically used to hide things away with what’s inside. I think my next version needs a drawer that says ‘stuff I don’t want people to see.’ Anyway, have your own drawer label idea, leave me a comment!

    “stuff I can’t fit into right now” and “fetish costumes” would be must-haves

    How about sex materials and gifts that you’ve received, but just too lazy to return, or never got a receipt to return.

      You and your wife had very similar responses to this post… coincidence? Remind me not to look through your drawers when we are in Chicago!
