Ikea Rast Hacks

One of the things I've been shopping for in the master bedroom is a nightstand for my husband's side of the bed.  When we bought our bedroom set years ago, we were living in a two bedroom town home.  Out room wasn't big enough for the bed and two nightstands, so we only bought one.  So now that we are in a new home with plenty of space, we want another nightstand.  The furniture company no longer produces this set so I've been searching Craigslist for a mate and other furniture stores for something similar.
 

On my search, I kept coming across the Ikea Rast dresser.  It is a basic three drawer wood dresser that can be stained or painted to suit your taste.  I liked the price too at $34.99.


There have been so many people making this simple piece look fabulous.

The Turquoise Home attached trim to the bottom, painted it white, and stained the top.  I love it.


Why not make it one big piece of furniture?  That's exactly what Oh Everything Handmade did.


Little Red Brick House also did a two tone but stained the sides as well.


I like this simple gray Rast from The House of Lists.


Using a wood overlay, the Crafty Sisters created a fancy pair.


This one from Hello Boudreau looks chic with its linen wrapped exterior and nail trim.


Petite Vintage Interiors used decals to add some fun to a girls bedroom.


How about campaign style?  Classy Clutter added corner braces and pulls to glam up a pair of nightstands.


There are so many hacks out there, there's bound to be one for everyone's style.

I've ordered a nightstand online in hopes of it being a close match for my existing one.  If not, hacking a Rast is definitely on my list.

Look A Likes: Glass Pendants

I love a great light fixture.  It can really change the feel of a room.  I love the style of these lights.  With the version from World Market, you can get the look for a fraction of the price.

Gray Board and Batten

Good morning!

I showed you this gorgeous office with gray board and batten last week.  I believe it totally transformed the look of the room.  Check out her before.  I've done white board and batten in the foyer and the back entryway but adding the gray steps it up a notch.  It looks so sleek and modern. I decided to look around the web to see who else has added some gray board and batten to their home.


Bower Power did a feature wall in her master bedroom.


Thrifty Decor Chick also did a feature wall.


Chris loves Julia painted the entire room dark gray but added the molding behind the sofa.

The Shingled House paneled the whole bathroom.  Her space looks completely different.

Jenna Sue added board and batten to a wall behind the dresser.

Gorgeous right?  These rooms look extra fab because of the molding.  They're dark and moody.  I'm still deciding where I could put it in my house.
