EIGHT MUST TRY IKEA HACKS

Today on the blog, we’re sharing our “must try” Ikea hacks! This is a post I’ve been wanting to put together since our last DIY post made it’s appearance. But let me tell you friends, really good Ikea hacks are hard to come by! Maybe because there are SO MANY floating around the internet, that it becomes hard to separate the okay from the gotta have! But the ones I’ll be sharing with you today, I’m deeming as totally designer approved!

Below each photo, I’ve linked the source! So be sure to click there when you’re ready to take on a new hack!

And be sure to keep scrolling all the way to the end, if you’d like to see our approved list of Ikea buys! You know, the already wonderful items you won’t have to spend any time remodeling!

IKEA ROCKING SHEEP HACK

Starting things off with my favorite DIY of the bunch! This rocking sheep hack is so clever, especially considering the fact that the animal you’ll actually be purchasing is a moose! I’m just so in love with the end result of this project! It’s fresh + modern and the perfect cherry on top to your home nursery!

IKEA BILLY CABINET CANE DOOR HACK

Since cane cabinetry is very much in season, I can’t think of a more perfect way to bring this trend into your home! We’ve seen lots of custom cabinetry with cane door fronts, even cane inspired cabinets and credenzas. But this is a great way to get the look on a budget!

KID’S PLAY TABLE IKEA HACK

How fun is this play table hack? It’s crazy what the look of marble can do! Totally transforming this once plain and somewhat boring table set into a statement piece. And might I add, a purchase that looks somewhat spendy! Love this idea!

BLEACHED WOOD IKEA CONSOLE HACK

Such a clever DIY! I love the result of this console table hack. The finish is one part modern, one part vintage and one part gotta have! A perfect solution for those with a tight entry. Although, I’d imagine you could copy these steps to a lot of other Ikea furnishing selections! It’s the DIY that keeps on giving ;)

CONCRETE GLOBE TABLE LAMP IKEA HACK

Concrete DIY’s are all over the map. So I love how the creatives behind Paper & Stitch have found a way to combine both a concrete project with an Ikea hack. This table lamp, especially great for a kid’s bedroom or homework space, will tell it’s own story. A great focal point and soooo affordable!

MODERN IKEA PLAY KITCHEN HACK

BUILT-IN IKEA BILLY BOOKCASE HACK

Who would have ever thought to take a freestanding cabinet and make it look as though it were built in? Such a genius idea for those wanting the look of something existing to the space! And now I have to note, how amazing is it that Ikea furniture is so easily paintable?
