Ikea 8 Drawer Dresser

I’ve gotten the question about the difference between IKEA pallid and white stain behave a mite. The questions mostly stem from my nursery dresser, which is the IKEA Hemnes 8-drawer dresser in fortunate sully, and it’s available for $249. I thought I’d share the difference between white and white stain. I own coin of furniture in both finishes so I test like I can offer decent insight into the matter. Because it’s obviously very controversial, and I’m certain folks waste sleep over the painstaking decision between the two. I’m childbearing to tackle white first and then move on to white dye. WHITE White is more of a creamlike, off-white and has a half–gloss finish. My home duty workstation and shelving one, the former 5×5 Expedit (now called Kallax), is favorable. You can tell the difference between the creaminess of the IKEA white and the bright white storage boxes, as well as the uncompromising darling paint I used on my file cabinet, peculiarly if you look at the file cabinet handles. Owen’s nursery closet inclining one, the 2X4 Kallax, is also white. There are a few posts out in blogland that melt on color matching the IKEA white to specific sketch colors. Here’s a really good post by One Little Project. She matches the IKEA white semblance to separate brands of paint. And DecorChick! had the white color matched and shares the color formula here. Why am I bringing this up? Well, if you’re like me and live 2.5 hours from the nearest IKEA (but not for long– IKEA Indianapolis is coming in sin 2017!) you indigence to make sure you cane precisely what you’re acquisition and that the item you want is in stock. Or possibly you live near an IKEA but don’t indigence to buy a coin of furniture, ear it home, assemble it, and then decide that it’s not the right shade of white. So if you’re trying to see if IKEA white will match another piece of furniture in your room, you can grab a paint relish and see if it’ll work. WHITE STAIN White stain is more of a vivacious, true white. It also has less of a sheen than white. I’d say that it’s more of an eggshell finish. Since it’s a stain, a little bit of the flag woodgrain shows through but it’s not very observable. Plus, I kind of like it since it adds a little kimberwicke of character to the dresser. I went with white stain Hemnes dresser in Owen’s nursery because his crib is a bright white, and I wanted them to look stick. Plus, the trim in his room is painted ultra white, and I knew the happy stain would look improve next to the baseboards compared to the white finish. Yeah, the nursery press shelving unit is white, but the doors on his closet are gripe more than they’re open, and the Kallax isn’t available in white stain. Here’s a finisher look at the drawers. As you can see, the wood grain is barely noticeable. Here are some stuff to consider when choosing between white and white stain. If you’re wanting to use the dresser in a nursery and have it double as a changing station, which I highly commit because having a dresser AND and a changing seems like a worthless of space to me, you may want to respect some things. Since the favorable has a semi-gloss finish, it’ll be easier to wipe down. If you really deficiency the white stain, but are still concerned, you can always put a clear coat of poly on the top to help with easier clean up. We didn’t add poly to ours and wiping it down has never been a question. Another thing to consider is that it’ll be easier to touch up the white with some color-match semi-gloss paint. I tried finding a blush marriage for the favorable stain but couldn’t find anything. I’m going to call the IKEA help desk and see if they can help me out with that. Between the two different types of finishes, I feel similar the white is more durable than the white stain. There’s some small dents on the top of Owen’s dresser. The pure stain is starting to rub off a little where we stand to change his diaper. My white close workstation has held up fairly well over the past few years. There’s a couple of small scratches that have taken off the paint but there’s no dents. Which do you prefer– white or pale stain?

So … I am so ineffectual with the “white” at Ikea. We have a white Kallax and a white Billy. Not “white sully”, but “white”. They match perfect and have the same cleanable/durable laminaceous type perfect. I went to Ikea yesterday to pick up the 8 draughtsman Hemnes dresser. I knew I wanted the same “white” to match my other Ikea “white” pieces. It looked a little yellowish, but DH assured me it was the lighting in the magazine. I took it home and took a piece out of the box and laid it across my Kallax and Billy … and sure enough the “white” Hemnes is NOT the same “white” as the other “white” Ikea pieces (Kallax and Billy). It is definatly more yellow and a little more shinny too. WTF Ikea?!?!?!? I’m ok if you want to have two other whites (“white” and “white stain”), but you need to keep the “white” consistent across the different Ikea lines. Anyone else have this problem?

If you remain near an Ikea I recommend investing in the drawer organizers. If you don’t live near an Ikea you can direction the organizers from here. They make organizing clothes, especially baby apparel so much easier.  And like you saw with the catch-all draughtsman, they also help with organizing random items too.  Plus, preference with most things found at Ikea, they’re cheap. A set of 6 organizers is only $8. Since we live 2 hours from an Ikea, I stocked up on them on our last trip. And I’ve already application them for other things, like the postpartum care kit I put together in our master bathroom.

Rated 3 out of 5 by anthony11 from Be careful Bought one of these for my son. Unlike the Nordli, which is a cruel joke, this can be assembled as shown with the instructions. As always with IKEA kits, I recommend laying out all the ironmongery in advance on a loss-test surface, grouping each type and matching counts against the instructions. With this piece I couldn’t find the instructions and went online. At first I found a PDF that Asher different hardware; after more searching I found one that correlate with what I have — it would seem that they radically changed the design over time. I found the printed instructions only when tearing the box down for recycling; they were hidden. Again as always with IKEA, prefer among the similar parts carefully, especially if there are two sizes of wood pegs. Use a small amount of furious glue on any joined between untreated insane surfaces, and when inserting screws — this dramatically improves the solidity of the assembled piece. Specific to this piece, when tapping pegs into the drawer fronts be careful to push them in fully. I failing to do this on one drawer, with the ensue that when tapping the sides down so they’d be flush, the pegs reason the particleboard to bulge out in front, causing an area of the lamination to sink off. I put a white sticker over it, but it’s not the same white and looks flinky. And IKEA of route won’t sell us ability. Date published: 2017-05-05

Hi I am looking into getting the 8 drawer HEMNES, 2 HEMNES nightstands, and the 6 drawer HEMNES dresser. The only problem is the 6 drawer ONLY comes in White and all the other ones come in both white stain and fortunate. I was thinking I wanted to go with the white stain but I am torn because I feel like the 6 drawer will stand out like a distressing thumb with the white stain furniture. Do you think that will happen? Also you above-mentioned that the white is more durable? I was judgment the white stain would be which is why I was -ways to go with that but maybe we will have to get all the supplies in white if its more durable.
