All of our bedroom furniture is from ikea or we made it ourselves. That is a fact that I am immensely proud of for several reasons . . . it’s chic on a budget, we built it, and we didn’t kill each building ikea furniture together nor at the actual store. Our marriage has survived the ikea test. #praisehands.
The key, ladies, is to pick it out and then leave your husband alone while he builds it 😉 Go have a pedicure, lunch with the girls, shop with your mom, do whatever you want to do and let him build it. Then come back and let him go do what ever his heart desires while you decorate.
Moving on . . . we chose the tarva collection for our dressers because I wanted sturdy wood furniture that I could personalize the colors I chose. I stained the tops and painted the bottoms with white. You can find how I did those on my crafty spot. But our nightstands we wanted to have more storage so we went with the brimnes. The only problem was I needed to figure out how to get the stained top to match our dressers.
Head on over to my crafty spot today for all the details on how I accomplished my goal of an ikea brimnes hack!
