Malm nursery drawers makeover inspiration

A few weekends ago we made the trek out to Ikea to help kit out the nursery and one of the things we came back with was the Malm chest of 6 drawers in white. Ours in still currently in flatpack form but this is what they will look like.

The plan is to use the top of the drawers as a change table but I've been mulling over what I want to do to the front panels to make them a bit more awesome and less boring. I was contemplating wallpapering the fronts of the drawers until I saw this tutorial for upholstering Malm drawers in fabric and padding instead:

So cute. I think I'm going to give this a try with our drawers but instead of using contrasting colours I'd like to try this ombre look:

But in this kinda colour scheme.

Things might change a little as we start to put the room together and depending on what fabrics I can find but this is where I'm at right now.
