Chic Ikea hack


I love a good Ikea Hack and this one is so chic & stylish! 
 This is the Eland two drawer chest from Ikea.  Unfortunately they don't carry this collection anymore.  Such a shame because aren't those curvy legs fabulous?
Alison from the blog My Little Happy place had two of these chests professionally sprayed in the Sherman Williams high gloss paint "Daring".  And then painted the walls in Sherman Williams "Mindful Gray".   

Love the color combination here, not to mention the contrasting lamps and shades.  She then paired her two chests with two mirrors and two lamps...creating drama and balance!
So a traditional dining room gets a glamorous update with high gloss paint, gray walls and a chick chevron rug.  This is one to bookmark!

  1. I was looking at those for the longest time, finally decided to bite the bullet just to discover they were gone. Those curvy legs were a perfect match for another table I own! :( I Love the orange!
