<3IKEA<3 hack...with Rust-Oleum of course!
Everyone that knows me, knows I love Ikea. It's both a blessing and a curse that it is down the street from me!!
I was so excited to see this little dude back at our local Ikea. I have seen hacks that turns this into a card catalog looking little storage box and I had been wanting to try it.
I bought the first one....then decided that was not enough and needed another one and went back the next day!! Luckily, they are only 14.99.
I also put in my Amazon Prime order for 30 card catlog look handles that were only 9.99! For 30!!!
For the first one, I used the varathane weathered wood accelerator. I added the handles, but thought I had put them on too low, so I made note of that for the next attempt.
The second one, I used the Rust-Oleum spray paint in Rust-Oleum 249131 11 oz Universal All Surface Spray Paint, Oil Rubbed Bronze Metallic.
I then added the handles further up.
This was a quick and fairly inexpensive project that I enjoyed doing (minus the part of screwing in those little nails...patience eludes me always).
