Ikea Rast Side Table Project- Little House Blog DIY

Aubrey and Lindsay from Little House Blog made this beauty

from this stuff.
Genius. And by genuis I mean easy.
And by easy I mean, maybe I could actually do it.  Remember, I am NOT DIY.  I am DIFM (do it for me).  I'm not ashamed.  I'm real. Ha.
I might do it for the new guest room.
Should I?
Go check out their post here.
And a spray paint version here.

(maybe I can sweet talk St. John into staining it for me, we'll see...)

(A)Old brass OR (B)burnished bronze???

Don't forget to enter the business card giveaway!


  1. Good luck, either way! I with ya, somethings I don't mind doing...others, I will gladly find someone to do it for me (painting walls is one of them).

  2. I love that. I ordered the hardware but that is as far as I have gone with getting one of these beauties in my home. GO for it, sistah!!!!

  3. One of my favourite DIYs...her end tables are gorgeous!!!

  4. You could so do this! Those tables are gorg- I have that same hardware on a piece in my entry foyer! Mine are the shinier ones and I love them!

  5. I love it. I want the burnished bronze hardware! I'll have to find out where they order those?

  6. Gorgeous. Yes, I am sure you can do this. It is stunning. Hugs, Marty

  7. Love it! You can so do that! Check out my first DIY project that I'm going to attempt! So excited!!!

    xoxo! Jennifer

  8. Totally cute, totally fun, and totally DO-able (even if you're not a major DIY-er Shelli)!!! :)

  9. I think you could handle it. Or if you really want to DI-hire you could always find someone who pants furniture in your area and have them do it.

  10. You can do it, Shelli! I love this piece! I'd probably go with the burnished bronze for a shinier look.

  11. I think it is time you tackle a project! And then guest post for my spray painting series! haha!
