What started as a birch plywood Ikea Moppe mini chest a neighbor left in the lobby, has turned into this nice little Raspberry Pi organizer for Jim. I started by painting the fronts of the drawers with a white enamel paint, and it hung around like that for awhile, looking like a miniature doppelganger of our birch veneer Ikea Expedit shelves. But then I decided to class it up a bit with some Special Walnut 224 stain leftover from our headboard tutorial awhile back.
It's amazing how you can transform an untreated wood piece with a bit of stain and some paint. Even if it's one of Ikea's cheapest pieces!
