IKEA RAST hack – Teal and Tacks

I started making over our Master Bedroom in September--I got busy with Family Trees so I haven't finished all the details in the room enough to show it off.

But I've been wanting to show off these nightstands for months now!

When I started the Master Bedroom overhaul I decided we needed nightstands that had more storage space.  I immediately thought of all the cute IKEA Rast hacks that I've seen and knew that I wanted to do one of my own!

When I was choosing the paint color for our bedroom I ended up buying a whole gallon of a really dark Teal color.  I decided not to put it up on the walls, but then I was left with a whole gallon!  So I chose to paint my Rast nightstands with it instead!

And with a little fake staging, here's the final result! IKEA-Rast-Hack-Teal-and-TacksIKEA-Rast-Hack-Side-View


You'll have to see them in their final nightstand glory once I finish the rest of the room, but for now I'm happy to show them off like this!


So what do you think?
