Ikea Hack Tarva Drawers and Desk

July 18, 2019

Henri and Eloise's room is pretty small. Really it's only meant for one person but both of them have to make it work. It's been hard to fit necessary things in like a desk for homework and dresser drawers along with twin sized beds, especially considering I need two of everything. Finally finished this IKEA hack yesterday. I hacked them to match the farmhouse beds I made earlier.

It's basically just the Tarva dresser with some extra moulding embellishments on the front face and new pulls. The desk portion is two pieces of wood laid flat and connected between the two dressers with L brackets screwed into the studs in the wall. I also white-washed it like I did with the headboards. It works for the room because it's not too deep but deep enough for a desk. I plan on buying two orange stools for the set up the next time I pop over to Ikea.

The baskets are the OBSERVATÖR clip on wire baskets from Ikea. They're great for storing books, paper and even a small laptop. Best part is that they're only $3 each! They have similar ones in brass for the Kallax shelves but they'll work in a lot of other shelving. The cute metal caddys and art clip strips I bought from the Target $5 and under section during Easter.

I replaced the original wood knobs on the Tarva with these drawer pulls from Amazon. They were great for the price AND large. Like the calligraphy? It's easy! Learn how to in this post!
