Suitcase Dresser IKEA Hack

Jen from Girl in the Garage has started 2015 off with a bang with this awesome IKEA hack. Since Jen lives far from IKEA, she doesn’t usually have access to their budget-friendly furnishings. However, when Jen finally had the opportunity to visit the store, she snatched up a RAST chest for only $34.99 to make over into a very cool suitcase dresser. Jen says, “I stained the sides, painted the drawer fronts, and added accessories to make the drawers look like suitcases. It’s going in my son’s bedroom, and it’s now one of my favorite makeovers!”

Jen was inspired by the Trenton Suitcase Chest from World Market.
