Before & After: Anna’s Take on the Ikea Rast
We’re certainly no strangers to the versatility of the Ikea Rast around here. I even put together a post about The Endlessly Adaptable IKEA Rast Dresser last year. This $35 dresser is a DIYer’s dream and I love continuing to discover new variations. Anna took the simple little dresser and turned it into a classic nightstand…
Anna recently shared her Rast customization on her blog, Take the Side Street. She also shared the humorous little story about how she started the project back in October and only just got around to finishing it this week. ‘Atta girl! I totally understand where you’re coming from!
It’s hard to believe this is the same piece of furniture but under the added trim on the drawer fronts, the embellished top, and new paint job, there really is a Rast. Anna also added feet to the base of her Rast and, in my opinion, that embellishment alone makes the cheap-o piece look much more expensive.
