1) Before putting the draws together you need to fill and sand the original holes on the from of the draw for the handles.

2) You need to paint the front of the draws a white gloss or matt spray paint, depending on your preference.

3) You add the black handles at the top of the draws in the centre with small screws and a drill (the screws should come with the handles)

4) If you want a darker wood look on the outside of the draws yo will need to give the Rast a coat of wood stain, but this is according to personal preference.

5 You build the draws as per Ikea instructions and there you are, an exclusive designer looking piece of furniture.

And here we are, a stunning piece of furniture. The best part about an Ikea hack is you have a unique item…just for you!

Happy hacking!!
