My DIY Candy Pink Raskog!

Happy Friday everyone!
I am sharing my raskog today. I held off a year before I bought this raskog. It was sold in grey and  turquoise. I loved the turquoise but wanted something different. As luck would have it...Ikea came out with a cream colored cart. I knew it was time. I ran to Ikea but the cream still did not feel like I loved the color. It looked like an ugly office color from the 1970's. So here is my ikea hack as they call it...
 

Pretty in pink!

Here are the color's Ikea offers. The cream actually looks pretty here but trust me it's not. lol

I used Rustoleum in Candy Pink. 2 Cans did the trick for 2 layers.

My Process:
- assembled the cart
-taped up the wheels with painters tape
-sprayed my first can
-let it sit overnigjht
- the next morning added another coat
- by afternoon it was dry and went in my office

I have not had the heart to fill it up because it's just so pretty the way it is,

I would love to see if you take the plunge and buy yourself this wonderful cart! I am still searching for the best way to organize and fill it.

I'm out........ toodles!

  1. Heeeey!! I have the beige cart and I love it to bits. The colour IS pretty! :-( Yes pink is cute also but I have my studio in cream, reds and greens, so it would look awful in pink in my house, yuck.

  3. Nice. I'm going to be doing a guitar with this. How much running did you run into?

    1. No running at all just keep a steady pace of spraying back and forth. It sounds awesome!
