Shabby chic Rast

Materials: Ikea Rast, incense burners, paint, brush, saw, emery sandpaper for polishing

Description: A forgotten brown Rast commode in the corner gave me a perfect opportunity to try distressed paint technique.
I also had a few unwanted incense burners.

1. I polished the whole thing, then glued the incense ornaments to the middle of the drawers.

2. Driven by a sudden impulse i cut out a pattern from the bottom spacer with a jig saw, polished and stuck it to the top.

3. I painted the whole commode to light blue.

4. When dry I used sandpaper to distress certain parts of the furniture.
