  • Ikea Vittsjo Hack: Antique gold with marble shelves

  • Gold spray paint and IKEA are made for each other, especially when it comes to this hack of their inexpensive Vittsjo shelving unit! This was a rather simple project requiring only time, attention to detail, and a little 'let's give it whirl' attitude. First, let's back track.
