DIY- An IKEA nightstand HACK for TARVA

Hey folks! Since we are a newly married couple, a lot of our time is currently going in setting up the house. Getting the furniture in, setting up the kitchen, etc. you know the drill!

To begin with we got our bed for us have to a space to sleep in. We got ourselves the Dakota black bed from in Queen size black color and a memory foam mattress . We needed matching nightstands but we just did not want to order directly from store. We wanted to first survey the market. So our first stop was IKEA and I had previously looked at a few nightstands online. We had measured the height of the bed and so keeping the measurements in mind, we started checking for the nightstands.

We finalized the TARVA nightstand in wooden brown. Wooden brown was our first choice because we wanted to customize the nightstand. So the next stop was Home Depot. We got:

Tarva Nightstand

To work on the nightstand, we did the following:

STEP 1: Sand the nightstand lightly on all sides using 3M Sanding Sponge

STEP 2: Paint the nightstand completely with Varathane Stain + Poly using brushes

STEP 3: Leave for drying overnight

STEP 4: Spray or Paint with Lacquer to maintain polish-like look

STEP 5: Spray paint knobs from Target in Metallic Gold

Once assembled, this is the finished look!
