DIY Weekend: Ikea Rast and More

By Tinacolada @StyleScribbles
Last weekend we decided we wanted bedside stools to complete the look of our bedroom. Finally after major discussion revolving around budget and choices we ended up buying the Ikea Rast 3-drawer dresser, shown below.
We painted them green tea and ocean blue, with stains we had left over from previous crafty adventure, around the outside base and gave the drawers an awesome antique/ distressed look with antique stain we bought off the counter from Ikea store.
Here are the pics of at least a $1000 project we achieved in just $90. Any one from pottery barn or restoration hardware checking these out? I find they fit pretty well in out eclectic home and are comfortable plus the added bonus of extra drawer space.
Also I made this pretty little thing with some old left over piece of plywood and simple jute twite. The jewelry hanger is on sale. You can also purchase it at Etsy here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/124297844/hanging-jewelry-organizer-with-cork
Also if you are interested the Rast Ikea chest finished in green tea or ocean blue is on sale for Toronto locals only at $250, that counting the effort and talent that went in making it from plain jane Ikea to a rustic looking home decor piece.
Cottage chic with a rustic feel to it, distressed look achieved using antique glazing paint and green/ blue stain. Took us a total of 2 days to get the look, dry it perfectly and enjoy our latest creation.

Hey there! When you bought these, was it wood with no paint or did they have a gloss over it?
