My Rast Hack

I hacked a rast! I first saw this Ikea hack on Aubrey & Lindsey's blog and agreed that they would be perfect night tables. I really liked the painted drawers and stained sides & top, so I went with that same style. Here is how mine turned out: 

Rast 3 drawer chest, Ikea: $39.99 each
Paint & primer for the drawers - already had this! 
I used Danish Oil for the top & sides. (It's basically a one step process, which I like.) - already had this too!
12 knobs - I got these from Richelieu (which is a wholesaler, but I could order them through work). They were about $2 each. 

Grand total:  $52 per table! Yay!

Love it!

There are tons of Rast hack ideas online. They are fun & easy! Here are few of my favorites if you want to try it for yourself & need some inspiration:
