The Ikea rast chest of draws comes in at $69 and while its simple Scandinavian look is attractive, it is the perfect unit for hacking. Even on their website they encourage you to Mae this unit your own. Its the perfect plain base unit to start and the following hack is so simple, yet so effective and has turned the basic Rest in to a unique designer piece.
So how do you turn this:
1) Before putting the draws together you need to fill and sand the original holes on the from of the draw for the handles.
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!
