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!

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!
