    I have a dresser from IKEA (similar to this one: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70121763) and I'm having a bit of an issue with the drawers.... even after being shut, they start to slide open. Even if there are not heavy clothes/items in the front part of the drawer, they start to slide open. The dresser is on an even surface and has not always done this, it started about a year after being assembled. I was wondering if anyone would have any ideas on how to remedy a problem like this? I know I should not expect too much out of cheap IKEA furniture, but nonetheless I thought that this is not something that should really be happening.

    Any suggestions are appreciated; thanks.

    One thing you could try to make them stay closed is a set of magnets. Just put one in/on the back of the drawer and put the other on the back inside wall of the dresser. It works for me.

    Ikea has great stuff.

    Putting together that great stuff is a pain.
