When we moved, I wanted to simplify my bedroom. I had huge furniture (see below)
Including gigantic bedside tables (below)
I sold the entire set on Craigslist before our move date. I bought a new bed and needed bedside tables. I saw one I liked and could not believe it was an Ikea Hack!
So I went out and bought 2 Ikea Rast tables and refinished them.
This is the Ikea Rast:
After refinishing using Lindsay's method I ended up with this:
I did not paint the inside drawers:
I used a nickel finish instead of Lindsay's bronze pulls:
It took me 2 days to finish. It would have taken less time but I primed and painted 2 coats of the white. (I ended up using BM White Dove. The BM Chantilly Lace was a little too bright for me, especially with the contrasting walnut stain). I poly-ed the stained portion also.
At first I thought they were too small, especially compared with the monster bedside tables I used to have. But I really like them now.
