I heard Ikea furniture is notorious for having hundreds of pieces and is difficult to assemble. So, I coerced my husband to put the two side tables together. To his surprise it was pretty easy, alleluia! I would've never heard the end of it if it was difficult!
I stained the exterior except for the drawers with espresso stain to match the other furniture in my bedroom.
Then, I painted the drawer fronts with oil based high gloss paint. Oil base paint gave it the smooth lacquer looking finish that I wanted.
I had ordered brass pulls from d.lawless hardware, they had really good prices and a nice selection.
I really like the way it looks in my bedroom. Have you done any Ikea hacks lately? I would love to see it!
Thanks for stopping by!
