All that RAST

With the new year fast approaching, its time to change up your IKEA!

The IKEA RAST chest of drawers is understandably popular with DIYers  - its just begging for a make over.

So, we couldn’t resist making some of our own revisions.

For a shabby-chic feel, we used driftwood and white PANYL.  Just by changing the drawer fronts, a rather bland piece takes on a cottage-style look:

It's hard to go wrong with black and white.  Adding simple white knobs and slick pegs gives the RAST a cool, minimalist look that fits any space.

With our RAST juices freely flowing, we let loose with a combination celedon, robin's egg and slate, with chrome knobs and and set of milled chair legs from Lowe's.  The result is a funky, eclectic RAST that pops with color.
