Ikea Rast Dresser with silver ring pulls

Materials: IKEA RAST

Description: I bought the IKEA Rast Dresser since it is solid wood for only $34, and then hacked it into a beautiful nightstand for our guest bedroom.

After priming & painting entire piece Benjamin Moore’s Dove White, I then measured and taped off a design for the front of the drawers. I used left over wall paint (Sherwin Williams Misty) for this part.

I bought my silver drawer ring pulls off Ebay for around $2 a piece. So for $47, I transformed the IKEA Rast Dresser into a trendy nightstand!

    Looks great! Is there a name for the shape you painted on the drawer? Also, how did you tape off the corners to make the rounded edges on the shape? Did you just freehand that part? Thanks!!

  3. Well done and very pretty!  Love that style!  Would fit nicely in my apartment, LOL !
