So if you saw from my Instagram Friday post from a few weeks back, I was at IKEA picking up the dressers I needed for the living room and spare room. I couldn’t wait to put it together and show you exactly what I put in it.
Right now, it’s unfinished, But I am inspired!
I bought white glaze from IKEA, but I’m thinking of doing a complete hack. You’ve seen IKEA hacks before, right? I’ve got a whole Pinterest board of them.
Anywho, I know I definitely want to stain the top of the dresser a rich dark walnut. The rest, I’m not sure if I should just do a white glaze, beadboard, or board and batten. Or a combination of all three?!? Since I’m not 100% decided, I’m leaving it bare for now.
What I can do is work on the knobs.
Originally, I wanted high gloss fun color knobs. I thought craft paint and modge podge could create that look for a lot less. FAIL.
Here is where I am supposed to put a picture of my failed attempt at high gloss knobs, but somehow it deleted from my camera. You know, the camera fairies did it.
It’s ok, but I wasn’t in love. Then I saw my inspiration pic and decided to try Oil Rubbed Bronze.
A few sprays later, here’s how it looks.
So much better! With the look I’m going for, this was definitely the better choice. All I had to do was attach them back to the dresser, and voila! Pretty knobs!
Even though the dresser is still bare, I love these knobs. We’ve been living knob-less for a whole week. It wasn’t the worst thing to live with, but it’s definitely easier to open.
Oh, and remember the TV stand I organized a while back? I thought I could put it in my storage unit as is, but that wasn’t happening. So now, it looks like this:
I carefully took it apart and kept all the pieces together. It will definitely be a lot easier to store with it taken apart.
Anyone planning any IKEA Hacks?
