A Fabulous Rast Hack

Hello and good morning.

Last night was so exciting and fabulous. I will tell you all about it next week!

On another note, my "baby" girl turned 17 yesterday. She isn't much of a baby anymore, she graduates this year and at 6 feet tall she is so stunningly beautiful. 

We have also starting the process of university selection and scholarship applications, so daunting and exciting at the same time!


today I bring you an Ikea Rast hack that a reader emailed to me. 

Jacob, who should have a blog, sent me these photos of a Rast hack he made inspired by Miss Mustard Seed's Union Jack dresser!

This is his version! You would never know that they started out as a plain Rast dresser!

Thanks for sharing Jacob!

  11. Amazing!! I actually referred to the union jack example you had suggested in my roundup of possible rast hacks for my as is rast - now I am even thinking I should "splurge" on another and just do this one already. Magnificent job!

    And I am having panic attacks that my baby is turning FOUR - I think I will need to be heavily medicated for 17... All the best!

  12. Took your advice and started the blog. First post is for the rast hack. I will have to get better at taking progress
