A few months ago I embarked on a trip that would go down in history. A trip that would change my life. A trip that would alter my dreams and make one hell of a dent in my savings. This trip?
I couldn't believe I hadn't been there until that moment! I felt like much of my life had been wasted. I loved every minute of it. I was lucky enough to go with my best friend, Rachel. You'll remember her as my partner in crime for this beadboard wallpaper makeover. She's a seasoned Ikea shopper and she showed me the ropes.
One thing she picked up was this Bekvam Kitchen Cart. It was the perfect size for her tiny kitchen and with raw, solid wood construction the possibilities were endless.
|Sorry for the dark pictures, they were taken in my basement/winter workshop.|
|We had already applied wood conditioner which is why the top appears darker.|
We stained the top with some left over dark stain I had and painted the bottom with MS Tailor's Chalk. I love the way it turned out. We also decided that we hate painting anything with slats. It's the worst! I must invest in a paint spray someday. Someday far, far away.
I LOVE the mason jar light she made. I will have to talk her into doing a guest post tutorial for us.
Well, that's all for now! I'm off to dream of Ikea as I drift off to sleep!
