Faux Aged Steel Ikea Cabinet Inspired By Restoration Hardware

39,117 Views
My tutorial for how to do a faux aged steel paint finish on an Ikea PS cabinet was the most-viewed post for last year. It was a spur of the moment decision to paint it, but I'm glad that I did it. Just a little bit of sanding, paint, and Annie Sloan's Dark Wax went a long way to give character to a plain piece of furniture for our boys' room.

    Thank you, Donna! I'm surprised that it has held up to the use and abuse of our two younger boys over the past 4 months, but I guess that a scratch or dent here or there would just give it more character. :)
