First things first—this is a recreation of Sarah Sherman Samuel’s Ikea hack. I loved it when I saw it on her blog and was looking for a way to add brass accents to a DIY dresser for our guest room. Sarah’s blog Stories (formerly Smitten Studio) is amazing and I am already turning to her kitchen as major inspiration for our remodel.
I painted the Ikea Tarva chest with white satin spray paint and cut about 2″ of the legs (just like Sarah Sherman Samuel did because it just modernized the look so much.) Gold spray paint and new brass knobs added the touch of gold that makes it pop. Brass knobs are from Menards.
