Corey from Sawdust 2 Stitches will show you how to completely  TRANSFORM  a  very boxy, cheap, modular IKEA shelving unit, into a gorgeous, Pottery Barn-esque apothecary console.

This is what she has to say about this project, and to follow the tutorial follow the link at the bottom of the article.

Let me preface  by saying this,  I do love Ikea.  I have nothing against it.  Truth be told I  have quite a few items from there including this:

We purchased this “Media Shelf”  shortly  after we got married from the “scratch and dent” area of Ikea  for $45.00, and I was  super EXCITED about it… for a while. Then one very romantic Valentine’s Day,  Andrew bought  me a miter saw.  That is when my life changed, and subsequently so did all my furniture.

This was a very simple makeover that  did not require a lot of  know how.  It already  had a sturdy structure, all  I did was give it a little facelift.

This is how I turned an Ikea shelf into a Pottery Barn-esque apothecary console.
