Amazing and Clever Ikea Mini Drawers (Moppe) Hacks
Moppe is the name Ikea gives to those cute unfinished birch desktop draws.
I don’t know why they call them that. I put Moppe into google translate and it didn’t come up with anything of meaning so I just think it’s one of those random Swedish words Ikea give their stuff.
Whatever you call it the Ikea Moppe is a handy piece of furniture and great fun to hack.
The Ikea mini drawers of the Moppe are so useful that I have a three of these around my house. One sits on my desk in the study. Another is in the hardware cupboard for storing screws and nails.
There is even one on the bookcase in the lounge for random little stuff I find lying around the house that even though I’m not sure what it is it looks too important to throw away.
So far I have only managed to hack two of these Moppes so I’m on the lookout for a creative hack for the third.
See if you can decide which one is your favourite, becuase I can’t pick one!
