Bedroom Update

I had shared the design board for our bedroom refresh here and we ended up sticking pretty close to it. I finally got around to taking some pictures so this is where we are at:

Stanley Bed from Overstock   //  RH Heirloom Quilt in Fog // Vintage Paintings & Mirror

We've had the Ikea Rast dressers for a while now and they've gone through a couple transformations. It's a decent little dresser, solid wood and at a great price. Here's the raw version:

RAST 3 drawer chest IKEA 

Then I saw this Ikea Hack and followed her instructions to do the same. This is my version in our old house:

I knew I wanted something a little different for our new bedroom and when I saw this DIY, I knew it was just was I was looking for. I added some trim around each drawer front, added a new larger solid wood top and then painted it all. I used Americana Decor chalk paint in Primitive from the Home Depot. They only had the small pots and I used about 1.5 of the small pots for 2 nightstands.

The wall color is Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray. It's a very clean, classic, calm color - I love it!

LOVE Print // Vintage Painting // Detroit Watercolor Print from Local Art fair // Pier 1 Candle stands // Homegoods Driftwood ball



  1. Amanda, love your pretty bedroom! The bed is gorgeous!!!

  2. Hi Amanda,

    I like your rast hack! It looks great! What are measurements of the top piece of wood and the trim? And where did you get both? Thanks!
