Materials: Rast chest of drawers

Description: This started life as a paint job gone horribly wrong. Eventually, after I hid the thing in the closet for months, I decided to give it a second try.

I sanded down the whole thing to get rid of the bad shellack job (not mine), then gave it 4 coats of paint and one coat of clear lacquer. I primed two of the drawers and covered them with fabric using Mod Podge Hard Coatir?t=ikeahacker 20&l=btl&camp=213689&creative=392969&o=1&a=B002L94RNY. I also covered the top of the drawer pulls with scraps of other fabrics.

It went from “hide in the closet” to “kid’s delight”.
