Disclosure: Hickory Hardware was nice enough to provide the dresser and the hardware, all opinions are my own!
I’m finally starting to finish some projects up and my bedroom is getting so close. I’ll be sharing the full reveal with you next week! Today I’ve got a little peek into one of my projects though, these Rustic Industrial Nightstands. A few other fabulous bloggers and myself were challenged by Hickory Hardware to makeover a basic Ikea Rast Dresser with their huge selection of hardware! I honestly think the hardest part about this was picking the hardware! I poured over their catalog for hours!
UPDATE: I finally got the tutorial for this piece up, get it HERE
I ended up going with these gorgeous Oxford Antique Windover Cup Pulls. My inspiration was an old vintage printer’s cabinet. I’ll be sharing a tutorial soon on how I got this planked look (update: get the tutorial HERE) without buying any extra materials very soon! : ) I just have to make another nightstand and photograph it this time ; )
Ikea Rast Hack | Rustic Industrial Nightstand
The color I used on this dresser was Urban Bronze. I ran across my paint chip card that I used for my living room (which is Sherwin Williams’ Worldly Gray) and this gorgeous deep/warm gray was at the very bottom. I knew I’d love it because my living room color is one of my favorites I’ve ever picked out! And it goes great with with my new cup pulls!
I sealed the nightstand with Annie Sloan Dark Wax. I didn’t really want to distress this piece (I know everyone just fainted) but I still wanted it to look a little vintage-y. It’s kinda hard to capture that in pictures but it really looks old!
Overall I’m extremely happy with how this turned out!! I enjoyed branching away from my usual furniture color, white and/or stained wood. It was kinda hard for me, and my husband almost fainted when I brought home this color, but it’s just perfect. He’s so proud, haha : ) I can’t wait to share the full reveal with you, so don’t forget to check back next week!
