Rast

Rast 4 x 4





Materials: Rast, wood, white paint
Description: I needed a lot of drawers and the Ikea Rast was the only piece of furniture I could find with the right depth to fit my wall.
Then I simply assembled 4 Ikea Rast all together. Placed 2 normally and 2 bottom-up. (reversing it is the hardest part of all, you have to make new holes to put the drawers’ guides…)


Put real wood on the back and in the drawers to make them less “cheap”. Painted all in white.

    we did the same thing and mounted them to the wall! (and I painted them blue and mod-podged fabric on the front) i never want to put another dresser together ever again.

    Hi
    Sorry if I’m missing the point, but why did the top two need to be turned upside down?
    It looks really good!
    Thanks

    Have you thought about getting two extra drawer fronts (or just a couple pieces of wood) and creating false doors to cover the middle sections where the top and bottom dressers meet. It may make the project look a little more finished, and less like a hack. You could paint those two “drawers” an accent color or just leave off the knobs to not confuse yourself when searching for that specific item of clothing in the morning.

    this is great, I love how you got everything to be vertical and save space. And you customized the colors. IS this sturdy though?

    @ Wendy:
    i reversed the bottom two, not the top two.
    This way they fit better when you join them and I think it looks nice because you have one “middle-line” horizontally between the drawers…

    @ Marilyn
    it’s strong enough, I only have to be carefull with the top drawer, because I did’n use the included strip to attach it at the wall (I really do not want fo make holes, I’ve just finished painting!! :-) )

    You could always paint the strip in the middle with a contrasting color. And since paint is cheap, easy way to add color to a room, and change it up in a hurry. Like it!
