Ikea Items: Rast, chest of 3 drawers
A while back we bought the cheapest, plainest IKEA chest of drawers in the world to hide away in our wardrobe for a little extra storage. Then before we moved into our new place I had an idea to make these into cute and equally practical bed side tables!
What you’ll need:
Gold Shell Drawer Pulls, pack of 20 – £12.99 on eBay
2 x Ikea Rast chest of drawers – £20 each
Dulux Satinwood paint in Night Jewels 2 ~ £10
Three Simple Steps:
- Paint! I only had to do one coat on the untreated pine & the finish looked perfect instantly.
- Measure out the handles. So this was the most difficult part, making sure each handle on each drawer is perfectly aligned with the next. I ended up using a piece of A4 lined up to the corner and marking the holes, definitely not the most technical way, but i’m happy with the outcome even if it’s not 100% perfect
- Screw! Little gold screws were provided with the handles so just screw these into the marked holes (don’t worry about the original holes the handles cover them perfectly!)
