IKEA Rast Hack: Industrial Nightstand

Pin It
I love it when I have the opportunity to try new things and share them with you.

I love it even more when the opportunity to do try something new coincides perfectly with a project that I wanted to try needed to do anyway....finding my son a nightstand.
 
Let me introduce you to this wonderful little industrial-inspired nightstand that I made for my youngest son's first college apartment using an IKEA Rast dresser and supplies from Menards, Pittsburgh Paints and Hickory Hardware.


A few weeks ago, I got an email asking if I wanted to join eight other bloggers for a "challenge." I thought to myself, "Are you kidding?!  I LOVE a good challenge....after all, I'm the girl who's trying to make a farmhouse out of a 1950's ranch house"...but I digress.

Vintage French Carved Wood Chair Preservation and Mini Makeover

Pin It

As much as I love painting furniture, there are times when I think that pieces are better off left alone.  Such is the case with this sweet little vintage French carved wood side chair that found me a few weeks ago. Sometimes, I'm lucky enough to find a chair that needs very little work. This is one of those chairs. To me, this chair was perfect when we found each other in every way...except for one.
