Ikea Rast Hack

The sounds and smells of back to school are strong at our house.  
No, it's not the smell of markers and the squeak of bus breaks...
it's the sweet sound of power tools, and smell of paint fumes and sawdust !!! 
Mommy's got her free time back!!!

I finished up a project for my son's room that I wanted to share.
Remember my $13 Ikea Rast I picked up at Goodwill...

With a little stain and some flashy new hardware, I'm loving the new look.

It's hard to get a good photo with the lighting and the crazy reflections
but I'm just mad about the catalog bin pulls.  
And at $2.69 a pop, It makes you kind of feel like your stealing...
that is unless you paid double for them on another website only to find them cheaper 
after said order was placed.  
Then you feel more like you were robbed blind!  But that's beside the point.

Hope you all like!  Happy Friday Everyone!  
Anyone have any fun plans for the weekend?

Linking up to these lovelies!


  1. that hardware is awesome! love it against the rich stain!
