Materials: TARVA 3-drawer chest

I wanted to submit my hack for the Ikea Tarva 3-drawer dresser.

1. I painted the pine Tarva dresser in Sherwin Williams Grayish (satin finish),

2. and then added O’verlays (Pippa Tarva 2),

3. and lastly, new knobs, and a stained pine topper.

    Those overlays are fantastic. They add such a subtle touch of elevation to the furniture. How hard are they to apply?
