Ikea hacks have taken over the internet. Although many of the hacks are neat, I haven’t really ever wanted to tackle one, until now. One of my favorite blogs is Sarah Sherman Samuel. If you all haven’t had a chance to read her blog you should head on over there and check it out. She bought a Tarva dresser and came up with this very simple DIY Project that turns a box dresser into a mid-century masterpiece. Now to be upfront about this Ikea hack, it isn’t necessarily cheaper than buying a vintage mid-century modern dresser. The key to the project is that it can be customized.

I love it and it was so simple all it took was a few tools and some elbow grease.

This was our first time using a paint sprayer and let me tell you were are pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to use. Stay tuned for a review on the paint sprayer.
