We are in the process of redecorating our master bedroom. So, while in Dallas a couple of weeks ago we popped into Ikea to pick up two of the Rast dressers to use as our nightstands. They come in raw wood and I knew I either wanted to perform a little DIY Ikea Rast Hack by staining or painting them and adding new hardware.
We got home and I got to work. I ended up using the Minwax Classic Gray stain and finishing them off with Annie Sloan Dark Wax. I wanted it to resemble barnwood.
I painted on a thin layer of the Minwax stain and then quickly wiped it away with a dry towel.
The results were still a little too light for me. I wanted more of a rustic wood look. So, I applied a layer of the Annie Sloan dark wax.
