Ikea Hack:Tarva Becomes a Greek Key WONDER

4 Hours
I wanted to add a vibrant piece of furniture to break up the matched set of my master bedroom furniture. An Ikea Hack seemed to be a perfect solution when I couldn't find anything that really spoke to me.
The greek key details of the dresser continues the look created by the custom trim that embellishes the curtains.
I finished the newly created edges with a Sharpie Gold Paint pen.
The hardware is from D. Lawless Hardware seemed like a good fit. It was the perfect "Icing on the Cake" for my entry into the Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest.
Obviously, I started with the Tarva Dresser from Ikea. It's a bit larger than the popular Rast and has two legs that make it a bit taller too. It was just the size I needed. I began by filling in the existing holes for the knobs. As you could see from my finished photo, I used gorgeous gold/bronze pulls.
I added straight, flat pieces of trim to the primed Tarva with wood glue and a nailer. Cutting, measuring and constructing the shape as I went around the drawers.
