I know you all have seen Beckett’s tiny corner in our bedroom a few times now, but I thought I’d share his $35 dresser makeover I did.
It’s called the RAST dresser from Ikea and I loved it because it came unfinished and more importantly, because it was only $35. I knew I needed something super small scale since I didn’t have much room to work with, and I also wanted it to fit well with the stump table I finished by the rocking chair.
The dresser started out looking like this…
I like that it’s got a bit of a modern look to it with the clean lines. I first bought the same furniture legs I had used on the stump. They are from Ikea as well. I bought the size smaller for this dresser and they were $12.00.
I painted the outside frame white and distressed it, then I cut out ABC stencils from paper and used a gel stain in a dark brown color to stain on the ABC. After that I stained over the whole drawer with Minwaxs’ Driftwood grey, painted the knobs white, and voila!
I love rustic grain that shows up on the drawers.
and that you can still see the grain through the ABC.
The legs make it a little less sturdy. If I knew this dresser were staying here longer than 6 months, I would probably secure it to the wall, but it’s not. So for now I’ll just use caution:)
and there you have it. Just enough storage for lil man clothes!

Stay tuned for my next super simple IKEA hack that made my life much easier:)
