I’ve had my Ikea RAST for a while now, and I finally got my butt to finish it, thanks to my little challenge to myself! I don’t know why I forgot to take a before picture, but here is what it looks like. So, I’ve had this picture in my folder for way too long. I fell in love with this dresser the second I saw it. The colors, the print, everything. So, I figured I’d try to paint my dresser to look like it.
I mean…how cute is that…?!?
But then I started painting it….and it looked terribleeee! It probably would have looked better if it were painted underneath and used a paint pen for the lines to get them nice and clean. I decided that it was really annoying to paint it all, and I didn’t feel like doing all three draws lol so I gave that up unfortunately!
I decided to cover it in scrapbook paper instead! I actually do like the raw wood, but not for the original way I was going with it, so I left it bare, and cut my scrapbook paper to the correct sizes.
The first one came out absolutely perfect, the second, a little bubbly but not terrible, and the third, was sooo bubbly. I put it on the bottom, so luckily, you can’t see it too much where it’s in my room.
Overall, I LOVED the way it came out!!! Like I said, it was originally in my bedroom, I moved it out to the living room to paint and take the picture. I actually ended up loving the spot that I put it in, that I might just go out and buy a new one to scrapbook all over again! Of course this time around I’ll make sure to use a cardstock so I don’t get any bubbles!!! Me no likey the bubbles!
Hope my challenges have inspired you!!
