IKEA Trones Hack to Hide Unsightly Garden Hoses

This IKEA hack uses the Trones shoe cabinet to conceal that ugly garden hose cluttering up your outdoor space

When we saw this clever idea, we couldn’t help but think how simple yet effective it is. By repurposing the Trones cabinet, you can create a discreet storage solution that not only hides your hose but also keeps it easily accessible whenever you need it.

IKEA Eket Cabinets Transformed into a Stylish and Affordable Planter Box

This IKEA Eket hack turns two simple cabinets into a stunning planter box for indoor or outdoor space.

The beauty of this hack lies in its simplicity. All you need are two Eket cabinets from IKEA and a bit of glue to create a planter box that looks like it came straight from a high-end home decor store. The sleek, minimalist design of the Eket cabinets provides the perfect foundation for a modern and sophisticated planter that will complement any aesthetic.

IKEA Besta and Metod Cabinets Transformed into a DIY TV Wall with Storage

This incredible DIY TV wall provides ample storage space and includes a separate shelving unit and a desk.

They began by using six 60 cm wide Besta cabinets with Lappviken beige fronts, which they mounted on the wall for a floating effect.

Next, they added height to the unit by incorporating four separate Metod cabinets, measuring 40×100 cm, with beige Havstorp fronts. To achieve a seamless look that extends to the ceiling, the Besta cabinets were hung 15 cm above the ground, ensuring a perfect alignment with the rest of the design.

For even more storage, they opted for floating Metod kitchen cabinets in a 60 cm width, matching the dimensions of the Besta cabinets. These were finished with panels from IKEA in the same hue to maintain a cohesive look.

To tie in the dark wood of the Noakk panels, they incorporated hardware store panels for the interior of the shelving unit (also 40 cm wide) and the shelves on the floating Besta cabinets. Nice work!

IKEA Dresser Transformed into a Stylish Faux Wood Masterpiece with a Fluted Base

We absolutely love how this IKEA dresser hack transforms a basic white piece into a stunning, high-end look inspired by a Lulu and Georgia dresser. The creative use of a fluted pedestal base adds a touch of sophistication and elegance, while the faux wood finish on the laminate surface is incredibly convincing, making the dresser look like a genuine wood piece.

What’s truly impressive is the attention to detail and the clever techniques used to achieve this transformation. The even spacing of the square dowels on the fluted base and the precise cutting of the square wood pieces for the drawer fronts demonstrate incredible craftsmanship and a keen eye for design. Amazing work!
