IKEA Rast Hack - Reveal

Here is my IKEA Rast reveal...I finished it a couple of days ago and I'm loving IT.

I now have tons of storage...9 draws.

I decided to use a dark stain on the outside box...and a simple white paint on the draw fronts.

...I filled in the original draw pull holes...there were two on each drawer...because I knew I wanted to use a different IKEA draw pull...

The silver draw pulls are from the IKEA kitchen collection and they were just $2.99 for two.

I left the bottom draws without pulls...I thought it may look too much like office furniture if I added pulls to the bottom draw.

...this is what it looks like when you put it together out the box.

...you know I couldn't leave it like that... 

I mixed a couple of colors of leftover stain to come up with this color.
I used oops paint to paint the draw fronts.... .50 cents.

...and viola

...wanna try it?  

Visit IKEA...it's just $34.00 and you can order it online.

  5. Great idea!! One other that I utilize often is to take pictures of my rooms and looking at them on the computer screen…for some reason, it gives me a new perspective and new way of looking at the room. Not sure why it works, but it does:) Thanks for the inspiration.

  6. Excellent job, I really like it as a tv console.

  7. We grow up listening that proper diet and exercise are very important to live a happy and healthy life. Seldom are we informed about the benefits of a right mattress and the harmful effects of sleeping on a bad mattress.
