Hello world! I hope you had a great Christmas and New Year! :)
Since Russell and I both had 2 weeks free from work, we knocked out a couple of projects around 'ole McCurdy house. The first was to improve our bare bones IKEA nightstands.
First of all, I wish I could take credit for this idea, but alas, MANY others have done this hack- Vanessa at This & That did a nice stained wood version; Give Everybody Nice Sweaters actually did the hack 3 times, 3 different ways (this one was my fave); but A Charming Nest's version was the one we worked from. I liked the contrast between the painted body and the stained top- plus all the wood in our bedroom is stained, so I thought it would be a nice change.
So, here's the before picture- like, right before, hence all the sawdust on the porch. By the way, this is the lovely IKEA Rast Dresser- $35.00!
