The New Nightstands-An Ikea Tarva Hack8:19 PM
I promised I would come back and share more details about the nightstands. It has taken me until today to finish getting the hardware on them. I think that proved to be the most challenging part. I think I shared last week that I was inspired by the hack done by Dear Lillie. I loved the trim work, the feet she added, and her hardware. You can see a few other hacks I was inspired by on my Pinterest Master Bedroom Board. I picked different finishes and ended up not using any feet so far. But I did use the same trim and style of hardware. I wanted to share a few more details about my tweaks and how I hacked the Tarva chest.
You see it starts off with unfinished wood and super-tall legs. When I put together the first one, I was so anxious to get a look at the scale that I put it partially together before staining and glazing it. I followed the steps below on the second one, which prevents you having to wipe and tape off the drawer liners and rails for staining and glazing.
