Description: I bought the IKEA Rast Dresser since it is solid wood for only $34, and then hacked it into a beautiful nightstand for our guest bedroom.
After priming & painting entire piece Benjamin Moore’s Dove White, I then measured and taped off a design for the front of the drawers. I used left over wall paint (Sherwin Williams Misty) for this part.
I bought my silver drawer ring pulls off Ebay for around $2 a piece. So for $47, I transformed the IKEA Rast Dresser into a trendy nightstand!
