The Fjellse didn’t think it could look this good

Combing Ikea for a little girl bed, I stumbled upon the cheap, humble, solid-pine “fjellse” and saw some serious potential; mostly because one can do just about anything with unfinished wood (I also have a deep disdain for MDF!). With a coat of flat paint, a layer of walnut stain over that (Benjamin Moore Gumdrop), a little artistic touch moving the stain around with a cloth, and finally a coat of shiny polyurethane, the results are perfect…for me… but I don’t think it’s going to be featured in Elle Decor anytime soon!
