Mr. Evans and I have been busy redecorating our bedroom (perhaps it's my nesting). We've painted furniture, added new light fixtures to the ceiling and nightstands, hung new curtains, and gave it a new feel. We also tackled a project for nightstands that I saw on Aubrey + Lindsay's Little House Blog. Check out the project here - basically, it starts with very reasonable and unfinished Ikea Rast dressers. A little paint, stain/varnish, new knobs and... voila... beautiful night stands, if I do say so myself.
There are also fun ideas for Ikea projects at Ikea Hackers (here).
