My New Favorite Ikea Hack

Thursday, June 14, 2012

This may very well be my new favorite Ikea hack.

The shelves are part of the Vittsjo collection from Ikea. 


Take one $70 shelving unit...

plus gold Rust-oleum.


 And now you have a very high end look for under $80.  Brilliant!

  1. I wonder what it looks like close-up. I've learned from personal experience that some spray paint jobs...now matter how well you do it...don't look as great in reality as they appear in photos. In the photo it looks beautiful.
