IKEA Hack Ivar Cabinet by IKEA

I love a good IKEA hack, and this one to transform two spartan pine Ivar cabinets is a good one. In a brief one-minute video, the creative folks at IKEA show how they mixed charcoal and green paint to create a dark, foresty shade that really brings depth and drama to the basic IVAR cupboards ($70 ea). They used dark door pulls, but I could see brushed brass or even copper pulls going well with this stain.

See more IKEA hack bef-afters via links 1 and 2 below. Find the Ivar cabinet on the US IKEA website via the 3rd link below, and a short video of the process to stain and create this moody sideboard via the 4th link (to the Swedish version of the IKEA website - no worries if you don't speak Swedish, the video is all visual and very easy to follow and understand).
