DIY Idea: Silver Leaf IKEA Rast Dresser

DIY Idea: Silver Leaf IKEA Rast Dresser

I'm really excited about all of the great ways to transform the IKEA Rast dresser. Perfectly suited to a makeover, the dresser has clean lines and a generic look. This makeover from Hodge:Podge takes it from boring to chic. Check out how they did it after the jump.

I think a great way to look at living green is by taking something that you can afford but aren't completely enamored with and turning it into something you can't imagine your room without. This will extend the life of your furniture and keep you within budget.

What do you need for this project?

  • Rast dresser from Ikea
  • Black paint
  • Silver leaf
  • Gilding adhesive size
  • Crystal knobs
  • Sanding block
  • Varathane
  • Paint brush for the paint and wipe-on poly
  • Smaller paint brush for the size
  • Fluffy dry paint brush to smooth and dust off silver leaf
