My IKEA Hack

There’s a lot of cool IKEA hacks out there,

where they take an IKEA furniture item and upgrade it with paint or trim…

This is one of my favorites…

I’m not quite at that level yet but I did attempt an IKEA hack on a smaller scale.

I started with this item:

LEKSVIK, rack with 5 hooks with antique stain for $10

I actually really like the stain a lot but wanted something that worked a little better in the pink, black & white bathroom (see the Before & After here)

So I sprayed the wood with this awesome spray (which has become a staple in my DIY arsenal)

and here is the finished product:

The color is cool because it looks black but it has that cool oil rubbed bronze look to it with a touch of a sheen.
