Ikea Rast makeover

While I love vintage and rustic furniture, the love for modern chic can’t be topped. I had two of the Ikea Rast chest drawers that I was planing on using in our hallway. The inspiration came from another project that I had completed a few months prior.

Our hallway felt so empty that I got started on this project right away, and it only took me one day to complete! Here are a few steps I took to complete the hallway unit.

  1. I adore the incredibly dark paint. I will be moving into my first “100% mine” place in a month, and I would love to do a makeover on an Ikea Rast. They’re SO affordable and I love the idea to use one as a hallway landing pad. They’re the perfect size, and a major +1 for extra storage.
