Welcome to the top 5 IKEA hacks of the week โ€“ April 14th Edition

Okay, letโ€™s dive in!

1. IKEA Billy Bookcases Transformed into a Stunning Blue Wall Cabinet

This simple yet impactful IKEA hack proves you don’t need to be a master craftsman to create a stunning storage solution. By combining five Billy bookcases and a bold pop of blue paint, you can transform any room.

What we love about this hack is how it showcases the power of color and the impact of vertical storage. By painting the bookcases a vibrant shade of blue and with them almost reaching the ceiling, you not only create ample storage space but also make the room feel taller and more expansive.

When attempting this hack, be sure to prioritize safety and securely fasten the Billy bookcases to the wall.

2. IKEA KNAGGLIG Boxes Turned Into a 3-Tiered Planter Box

This easy IKEA hack that turns plain KNAGGLIG boxes into a beautiful 3-tiered planter box. Just grab some wood strips and a trusty drill, and you’re on your way to creating a stylish and functional display for your plants. Itโ€™s a great way to enhance any room!

3. IKEA Kura Bed Transformed into a Cozy Bunk Bed with a Trofast Staircase

This awesome IKEA Kura bed hack transforms the Kura bed into a customized masterpiece.

What makes this hack so brilliant is the thoughtful additions that enhance both the functionality and the overall aesthetic. The Trofast storage unit has been cleverly repurposed into a staircase, providing a safer and more accessible alternative to the original ladder. The newly built railing, painted in the same shade as the bed frame, seamlessly blends in, creating a cohesive look.

We love how they added lights to the reading nook beneath the top bunk! What a cozy place to hang out!

4. IKEA Bekvam Spice Racks Reimagined as a Kitchen Shelf with Hanging Bar

This simple IKEA hack transforms four Bekvam spice racks into a lovely and functional kitchen shelf. With just a few screws and a touch of creativity, you can elevate your kitchen storage and add a charming touch to your space.

What we really like about this hack is the clever addition of a bar underneath the shelf, providing a convenient spot to hang spoons, cups, and other kitchen essentials. This small but impactful detail not only maximizes storage potential but also keeps your favorite utensils within easy reach.

5. IKEA Kallax Shelf Transformed into a Storage Bench

This IKEA Kallax hack combines both style and functionality. By adding beautiful decorative trim, a fresh coat of paint in a delightful color, and a hinged wood top, this once-simple shelf has been transformed into a charming storage bench.

We love the hinged wood top, providing not only a comfortable seating area but also a hidden storage compartment. Nice work!
