This amazing Ikea Rast nightstand hack is simple yet very gorgeous! Learn how to create this pretty Ikea Rast using a Dremel and few colorful stain colors!
STEP 1 – ASSEMBLE IKEA RAST
Start by assembling all the drawers and the frame as per the instructions. Don’t, however, install the drawers into the dresser.
STEP 2: PREPARE AND PAINT THE EXTERIOR
Add the trim boards to the outside of the Ikea Rast using 1 ¼” brad nails and wood glue. Add caulking to all the gaps and joints.
STEP 3: TRACE HEXAGONS
Print and cut out the hexagon shapes to use as a template. Trace the hexagons onto the drawer fronts.
STEP 4: ENGRAVE HEXAGONS
Using the Dremel Stylo+ or any Dremel rotary tool, engrave the hexagons.
STEP 5: FILL IN THE ENGRAVED LINES WITH METALLIC SILVER PAINT.
Don’t be too worried about getting it outside the lines.
STEP 6: SAND AWAY EXCESS PAINT
Using a random orbital sander, sand away any excess paint, and dirt from the drawer faces. This removes all the extra paint that didn’t go into the engraved areas.
