Heard of Ikea Hacks? Where you make Ikea blandness into something less boxey and Ikea-y, and instead more personal and unique? I keep stumbling across some good hacks that are totally DO-ABLE as far as my mediocre DIY skills are concerned.
Let’s get this party started.
Office Chair BEFORE (Patrik)
And Patrik’s Lovely AFTER:
Since Ikea stuff comes in pieces, it really is the perfect stuff to tamper with. Now this is a cool mid-century modern office chair that she just spray painted gold. (how to from Hither and Thither).
Ikea Pax Closet/Storage System: BEFORE
Pretty bland, no? I get the great storage for sure. And used in the right place, it could be totally awesome. Hence why I love Emily Henderson. Check out her improved office doors.
In her words…”pin that sh*t”. I am obsessed with those knobs.Yeah.
Ikea Lack Table (RETAIL $10)
And the inspiration from Clementine and Olive was a Clayton Grey Table (retail $455)
And here’s the hack AFTER. (not the greatest pic, but you get the idea).
That probably cost around $20-$25.
Ikea Vittsjo unit (USD $70)
Done 2 Ways:
Spray painted white and the wood was stained darker. Awesome.
#2: Gold and Glam by Ana Antunes
Spray painted gold with the glass shelves option (as opposed to the wood option above).
Amazing, right? Makes you wanna get to Ikea and start changing things up! Just takes a little research and creativity. And Pinterest helps.
**In other super fun and exciting news, I’ll be headed to Richmond this weekend (ROAD TRIP!!!) to see one of my favorite Brides to be, Britt! My college roomie for 3 years! I’ve got Stephen King’s 11-22-63 downloaded on my phone for several hours of “reading” in the car! Can’t wait for the weekend!
