DIY for kids: make a little library out of “Moppe”!

Project from Angelina -

Your kids love to read? Then head to the children’s library, which is open 24/7! Conveniently, it is located right at your home. The basis for the mini-library is the Ikea “Moppe” dresser, which is simply rotated and fitted with furniture legs from below. The attractive book station is ready, which, with the help of the d-c-fix® Uni semi-gloss adhesive foil in the color sage green, invites you to look at books every day anew.

You will need …

  • d-c-fix® Uni semi-gloss sage green adhesive foil
  • d-c-fix® application kit with doctor blade & utility knife
  • Pencil
  • Measuring tape

  • Rule
  • 4 furniture legs
  • Short screws
  • Cordless screwdriver

Let’s go!

This is how you make the book station for kids out of Moppe:


You have everything you need? Then get started!

Step 1

Remove all the drawers from the Moppe dresser.

Step 2

Turn the dresser with the openings facing up and determine the dimensions of the side surfaces.

Step 3

Transfer the dimensions to the back of the Uni semi-gloss sage green adhesive foil, add some allowance for covering around the top edge and cut the foil pieces to size.


Remove the backing paper from the first piece of foil.

Step 4

Apply the adhesive foil to the side surface of the dresser and smooth the foil into place using the doctor blade.

Schritt 5

Decide whether you want to cover the furniture legs completely or only partially, cut the adhesive foil accordingly and apply it to the four legs.

Schritt 6

Finally, screw the four furniture legs to the bottom – formerly the back wall – of the Moppe.

You’re done!
