Industrial-look Rast chest

Materials: IKEA Rast chest, label pulls, black paint

Description: I’ve been looking for an inexpensive way to bring the industrial look into my home. I found it. I painted a (clearance section) IKEA Rast chest in a glossy black with 2 coats.

Then I replaced the knobs with stainless steel label pulls from Lee Valley, simply nailed on. I labeled the drawers for stuff that needed to be cleaned up in my entry. And there you go! A stylish, organized entryway.

    This is simply fantastic. I saw these chests at Ikea and thought “gosh how boring” but now that I see what can be done! I think they would make great matching night stands for my black bed frame and they can store things to boot! Thanks so much for sharing!
