DIY-ify: Hide-away Printer

As the owner of a new giant printer, I instantly fell in love with this DIY from PBJ Stories. I just had to share it with all of you. Any time I can save space and hide clutter, I’m SOOOOO happy! I actually own this Hemnes dresser (from Ikea), but it’s still too small for my giant all-in-one printer. SO, I’ll have to keep searching for the perfect dresser. For now, PBJ Stories said I can share her DIY with you.

How she did it:

- This Hemnes dresser is perfect for this DIY, because the dresser fronts are attached by wooden dowels. Makes them easier to remove. She used a utility knife to detach the base from the front. If you need a little extra help, use a rubber mallet to knock it out.

- Use 3 utility hinges to attach the bottom of the drawer front and drawer base together.

- Attach a right and left support hinge to each side of the dresser drawer.

- Drill a hole in the back of the drawer. This is perfect to string the printer wire out the back.

- Add your printer, you’re done!

You can see more photos and more details on how she did it here, on PBJ Stories. Stop by and say hello!

  1. That looked so awesome. Would love to spend a weekend at the hotel with my 21 yr old daughter and a day just like yours at the Spa. It did look like heaven!

  2. As someone whose dining room doubles as office … and triples as craft room … and quadruples as sewing room … I love any and all ideas of how to hide away ugly electronics …



  3. Sounds exactly like my situation!
