Keep reading for instructions on how to create your own Ikea Greek key dresser!
- Paint the dresser your desired color, here we used gold acrylic spray paint for the trim and a baby blue for the restTimmyThe WienerDog
- Measure out thin pieces of wood for your Greek keys, depending on how you want them (vertically, horizontally, big, small) making sure that the keys will cover any knob holes
- Using a miter saw, cut, glue, and paint (two coats) on the Greek keys. Don’t paint the back since it will be glued onto the dresser.

BDB Tip: I recommend finding a dresser without a laminate finish such as this one from Ikea which is easier to paint.
