DIY-ify: Ikea Hack DIYs

 

Trend: Ikea Hacks!

I love a good Ikea furniture DIY. I’ve gathered a few of my favorite Ikea Hacks I’d been saving for inspiration. It’s amazing what people have come up with!

 

DIY Campaign Chest from the Rast Chest: For Chic Sake.

Gold Desk Ikea Hack from discontinued Ikea items: Just Bella.

 Frosta Side Table from the Frosta Stool: Ikea Hackers.

 Painted Dresser from the Tarva ChestWhy Don’t You Make Me?

 Hanging Art Display using Bumerang Hangers: Ladies & Gentlemen Studio.

 Catch-all Corner Shelf from Knuff Magazine File: Design Sponge.

DIY Mid-Century Coffee Table from the Lack Coffee Table: Triple Max Tons.

Kitchen Island from Billy Bookcase + Numerar Countertop: Golden Boys and Me.

Sputnik-ish Chandelier from the Stokholm Chandelier: Ikea Hackers.

 

What do you think? Have you tried to revamp any Ikea pieces? I’m pretty sure I need  to try out that chandelier.

just in: IKEA goes rustic

Like Kristina said a few days ago, wood is everywhere in design right now. She noted it in bathrooms, I’m loving it in plank-walled bedrooms, kitchen islands with live-edge reclaimed wood counters, and definitely in furniture and accessories.

So there was a little bit of squealing at my desk when I saw a preview of IKEA’s latest collection, coming out in October. It’s all worn-in textiles, accessories that feel a little bit This? Just a family thing I brought down from the farm in Vermont., and raw wood furniture (my fav!).

 

Where else are you guys seeing this trend? And be real: Are you as in love with it as I am?
