Ikea Ivar Hack White Paint Brass Handles

Ikea Ivar Office Cabinet Hack Tutorial

Some of you may have seen our Ikea Ivar Hack showing our long brass European handles floating around in many Pinterest boards featuring Ikea hacks. We have received a large number of requests relating to our hack so we thought it was time to share our process. Below we try to give a brief overview of the steps and materials used. We hope you find it helpful and that it serves you as inspiration for your own fantastic Ikea hack!

Once you survive that Ikea shopping trip, you can take a more simple trip to your local Benjamin Moore store. Pick up a paint primer, a quart of Benjamin Moore White Dove paint and a clear water-based Polyeruthane to finish. We used one coat of primer, one coat of paint and two coats of Poly.

Ikea Ivar Hack White Dove


As you can see White Dove is not a bright white. It has a slight (almost invisible) grey undertone. We love it so much that we painted our whole house this color, but if you are looking for a brighter white you may wish to do some further research on your color of preference. 



Select your hardware!

We used our European Round Brass 17-5/8" Drawer Pulls for the drawers.

Another great option would be some of the long Lew's Hardware Handles


 Lew's Hardware 31-116 Bar Series Round Bar Handle, 20" Centers, 24" Length

For the top doors you could go with any matching pull that has an overall length of about 7 or 8". We used the 6-5/16" European Round Brass Drawer Pull

Time to drill some holes! Although this piece does not come with pre-drilled holes because the drawers are lipped and you can open them without hardware but the focal point of this piece in our opinion is the hardware so you can drill your own holes.

And then...Voila!
