Before & After: A Tame IKEA Tarva Gets a Chic Upgrade

We love a good, simple IKEA hack. In the hands of Sarah of Smitten Studio, this plain pine Tarva got a coat of paint and a little bling. Check out the results:Fresh white, gold legs, and brass knobs add much needed storage and a dash of style in the bedroom of Sarah’s cabin, after the removal of a bunk bed/closet system. Sarah also sawed a couple inches off of the dresser’s legs for a more contemporary proportion. Check out more photos over at Smitten Studio.

Name: Lauren Baker Location: Ravenswood; Chicago, Illinois Size: 927 square feet Years lived in: 10 months, owned From the moment Lauren opened the door, I knew this was going to be a fun tour.

Before & After: Jenny’s Dresser-Turned-Media Storage Makeover

cord controlJanuary Cure Our goal was to find a piece of furniture to add storage under our TV to house our entertainment electronics, cords and other odds and ends that didn’t yet have a home.

We started by removing the original handles and patching the holes left behind on the six bottom drawers with slices of dowels and a bit of wood glue.
