Ikea Hacks on Thrifty Thursday. One of my favorite places to go is Ikea. There is just no end to the stuff they have there. I could spend hours just walking around – I did so just the other day. Their products are designed to be extremely efficient. And budget-friendly! Sometimes, though, you just want to take an item a step further in the style department. Enter the Ikea hackers! I’m always amazed at the creative ways people change up an Ikea product and make it there own. I never realized how much could be done with Ikea furniture until I started this blog. In fact, there’s a whole website devoted to hacking Ikea furniture. I thought it was about time I shared some of the cool Ikea hacks that I’ve recently come across. Thrifty Thursday seemed like the perfect day to do so!
1. Besta and Billy (sounds like a cute couple!) pieces are combined to create a large wall unit. Trimming it out with crown molding and specialty lights gives it a custom finish. A vibrant pink background adds even more pizzazz! Besta and Billy Bookcase Tutorial
4. Antique card holder files are a rare thrift store treasure. You no longer have to wait to find them. Make your own out of a set of Moppe drawers. A bit of sanding, a little stain and cute brass pulls give it the look of a real vintage piece. Card File Drawer Tutorial
6. What kitchen couldn’t do with a little extra storage? Bring in storage with style by painting a wood Bekväm kitchen cart in white and painting a funky phrase on the front. Then deck it out with all kinds of storage hooks and gadgets. Kitchen Cart Makeover Tutorial
