Chic Rast chest of drawers

Materials: Rast

Description: I was inspired to do this hack after I had seen a similar one here.I ordered ring pulls from Ebay and decided to only paint the front most portion of the drawers white. I left everything else the Dark Walnut stain color from Minwax.

1. Assemble the outside of the chest
2. Stain all pieces except the drawer fronts
3. Tape off and paint the drawer fronts
4. Assemble drawers
5. Install drawer guides
6. Install drawer hardware
7. Put it all together

A very chic look for a tiny price!
