10 Ways to Make Over Your Favorite IKEA Dresser

At $35, who doesn't own a RAST chest? But that doesn't mean it has to be cookie cutter.

The Dresser

Made of sturdy pine wood, the RAST chest is the perfect (and affordable) blank canvas for a bit of creativity. ($35, ikea.com)

Charming Campaign

Recreate the classic design by painting on two to three coats of a bold, high-gloss hue (we love vibrant orange!), then attaching gold or brass corner hardware and pulls.

Wallpaper ($35 per roll, chasingpaper.com). Vase ($24, wolveswithin.com). Clock ($30,westelm.com). Books (anthropologie.com). Paint, Inferno by Behr. Pulls ($35 each, rejuvenation.com). Corners ($6 for four, amazon.com).

IKEA RAST Dresser Makeover

Old-Hollywood Glam

Add a pretty pattern to drawers by cutting wallpaper to size (leftover pieces and sample swatches work great!) and attaching with wallpaper glue. Paint the frame a subtle high-gloss shade, then screw on chic pulls.

Paint is Aloe Vera by Olympic. Magazine rack ($138, anthropologie.com). "Hello" sign ($29, westelm.com). Wallpaper, Rifle Paper Co. for Hygge & West ($140 per roll, hyggeandwest.com). Paint, Rust-Oleum Protective Enamel in Gloss Black (homedepot.com). Pulls ($7 each, anthropologie.com).
