Rast uplifted for hallway

2014-07-14 21.46.22

Materials: RAST chest of drawers, EKBY LAIVA shelf, Byholma baskets

I wanted to revamp my old Rast chest of drawers for probably the fourth time over past 7 years. Whenever I’m changing the hallway I’m doing something to that poor little wooden chest :)

This time I thought Rast felt a bit too heavy for my hallway so I decided to took out one drawer and replaced with a shelf. It appeared that Ekby Laiva is perfect fit so I didn’t have to cut it (yeah for me!). I painted the shelf and then just fixed it with few L-shape brackets and added basket so I can put away my scarfs :)

I’m loving the way they turned up!

    I did the same as above – thanks for the inspo! Just a question, does your shelf come up a little short like mine did? It fits into the space well, but it doesn’t go all the way back!

    Just wanted to make sure I got the right shelf :-)
