Carissa Miss: IKEA RAST hack


I'm so excited to share this furniture transformation! It's certainly not completely original, I mean you've seen plenty of IKEA RAST hacks, and even plenty of campaign dresser hacks. However, I looked and looked for a tutorial from someone who did the white and stained look on the IKEA dresser like I wanted to and couldn't find ANYTHING. Therefore, I'm going to pat myself on the back for introducing something new{ish} to pinterest and blogland. 

 ta-da! The steps are really easy and you can pretty much follow any of these fabulous tutorials to do your own hack. I'm planning on filling it with baby clothes {duh, but am completely lost on the styling of it. It's definitely shorter than I was envisioning so the visual space it occupies is not as substantial. I really like the height though because it makes the perfect table to hold my breast pump and other nursing necessities right next to my glider. But, that's not super visually appealing! Any other ideas?

For the cost breakdown, it's not the cheapest DIY, but building it from scratch probably wouldn't have been much less, since most of the cost was in the finishing materials.
Dresser: $34.99
Wood filler: already had
Stain {minwax dark walnut}: already had from multiple previous projects. Stain lasts forever!
White Paint: already had
Clear Water-Based Poly: already had
Brass Corner Braces: $2.67 for 4 from Home Depot
Drawer Pulls: $1.98 ea {didn't have them in my Home Depot store so I ended up paying $12.33 for the three with shipping}
TOTAL: $55.33
I am so totally in love with the hardware. Definitely makes the piece. There it is!
