Philosophers stone – my furniture edition

Hi, hope you are well.

As my holiday is coming to an end I would like to share with you some of my little projects.

I’ve bought two Rast chest of drawers from Ikea about a month or so as I got fed up with not having matching bedsides but I didn’t want to spend much and these gave me the chance to do something to my own taste.

Finished them today after 3 coats with 4 hour in between.

Not sure about the handles.

I sleep by the window

Overall cost £120 for both

Day and a half in my case but 1 day is enough.

Because it comes flat packed and untreated all I did was some initial sanding to get rid of any grease and/or dirt, 3 coats of Ronseal medium oak with 4 hours in between with some light sanding before the third one.

Let it dry, put the handles, assemble and put stuff back in again.

Hope you liked it and/ or feel a bit inspired.

Lots of love
