Turning an IKEA Dresser into an Industrial Apothecary Cabinet | IKEA HACK

Modern Makeovers
I picked up this very generic Ikea dresser on FB Marketplace for $40 and turned it into an industrial apothecary cabinet. The top was overhanging a little too much for my liking, so it was chopped off just half an inch. Then, I chopped off the legs and gave the dresser a base board to sit on so that I could screw on some new metal casters. For the base board, I used the top of a desk that I found on FB Marketplace for $30, which was a cheaper alternative to buying a new wooden board of the same size (plus I got to turn the desk into a set of nightstands to flip for profit, so win win!) Each of the six drawers were multiplied (faux multiplied?) using a router, giving the dresser a 24-drawer look. Each "new" drawer was then given their own metal label holder handle to really sell the look. The whole thing was stained using a dark walnut stain, giving some areas an additional coat for some tone variation. Finally, it was spray sealed in clear satin poly -- except for the top; I brushed on the poly for the top since this provides a thicker coat for extra durability, which is needed since pine is a very soft wood.
