Ikea Rast Makeover

Ikea Rast DrawersThis project was a simple one. I started out to do an Ikea Rast Makeover with their most basic chest of drawers. First off gave them a deep colour was in a hot pink paint. I love natural wood grain so I let it show through a little on this one.

I changed out the original wooden knob style handles for something a little girlier but kept the handles for future projects 😉

I think the overall look is feminine without being too sickly! My 9-year-old likes it because it’s pink. My teenager likes it because it’s modern and clean. Win, win!
