Re: Hemnes chest - drawer fix?
Welcome to IKEAFANS, cj.
The wooden drawer bodies in the Hemnes line are more stable and sturdy than other lines (Hopen, Malm, etc.), which use particle board instead. Was the bottom panel secure in the groove in the back?
It sounds like you might just have too much clothing in those drawers, and the bottoms can't support all of that weight. You can most likely pick up replacements at your local IKEA, in the returns department.
Find out how you can get a piece of Chuck.
Just taking my inner IKEA geek out for a walk.
