Ikea TRYSIL Hack & Favorite Gold Spray Paint


This Ikea Trysil hack might be better termed a mini-hack but since the One Room Challenge I have received a few reader requests about the spray paint, so here goes.  I used my favorite gold spray paint - Rust-Oleum 7710830 Bright Coat Metallic Color Spray, Gold, 11-Ounce to spray the legs, the top and bottom edges and the handles.



Then I added a little bit of Rub N' Buff 1/2oz Antique Gold to give some additional depth to the finish.

Ending with this slightly hacked Trysil.  As you saw, it was super simple and the legs looks so much better gold than the original black.  I kept the original handles because there are pre-drilled holes in the wood for them.  If you're painting the whole dresser, it would be even easier to put putty in those holes and add custom handles.

Which brings me to this White version of the TRYSIL - currently not available in the US.   However, with a can of glossy white you could get this look - or better yet, go with glossy white and the gold for the legs and edges.
