IKEA Rast Hack

We were in need of a new side table in the Living Room and I just couldn’t find anything I loved that was within the budget, so I turned to IKEA and made my own.  I selected the Rast 3-Drawer Chest since it’s unfinished, has drawers for storing my endless magazine collection, and at $34.99 is a steal!

1 coat of primer and 2 coats of Navy paint that I already had on hand from the recent Dining Room makeover, and here we are…
