Okay, let’s dive in!

IKEA Knagglig, Trofast, and Bekväm Transformed into an Adorable DIY Mud Kitchen

Unleash your child’s imagination with this simple and fun IKEA hack that creates the perfect outdoor mud kitchen for endless play. By combining the Knagglig boxes, Trofast storage units, and Bekväm spice rack, you can craft an adorable little kitchen that can be filled with both sand and water.

To create this mud kitchen, you’ll need the following IKEA items:

  • 2 large Knagglig boxes
  • 1 large Trofast box
  • 2 small Trofast boxes with lids
  • 1 Bekväm spice rack
  • 1 Sunnersta hook set
  • 1 Sunnersta container

Assembly is a breeze – simply use wood glue to attach the pieces together, and for added stability, you can insert a few extra screws. To finish the project, apply a wood primer and then paint the kitchen with outdoor paint in the same green-gray color as your sandbox.

What we love about this hack is how it encourages imaginative play and allows children to explore the joys of sand and water in a contained, dedicated space. The Knagglig boxes provide a sturdy base, while the Trofast units offer ample storage for all their mud kitchen essentials. The Bekväm spice rack and Sunnersta accessories add the perfect finishing touches, creating a realistic and engaging play experience. Nice work!

IKEA Pax Wardrobe Transformed into a Stunning Custom-Made Closet

Elevate your bedroom storage with this incredible IKEA Pax hack that turns a simple wardrobe into a breathtaking, custom-made closet. By adding a wood base, MDF top and framing, skirting boards, and beautiful gold handles, you can create a closet that looks like it was designed specifically for your space.

The key to this transformation is the attention to detail and the clever use of MDF to create a seamless, built-in appearance. The wood base provides a sturdy foundation for the Pax frames, while the MDF top and framing give the closet a polished, finished look. The addition of skirting boards at the bottom ties everything together and adds a touch of elegance.

But the real showstopper is the combination of sleek doors and stunning gold handles. These elements elevate the Pax wardrobe from a functional storage solution to a stylish focal point in your bedroom, adding a touch of luxury and sophistication to your space. Love it!

IKEA Pendant Lamp Shade Transformed into an Enchanting Outdoor Light with Cupcake Baking Cups

WOW! This DIY turns an IKEA paper pendant lamp shade into a magical outdoor lighting solution. By combining the lamp shade with cupcake baking cups and battery-powered lights, you can create a amazing and captivating display that will make your garden feel like a fairy tale come to life.

The secret to this transformation lies in the surprisingly perfect pairing of the lampshade and the cupcake baking cups. By simply gluing the baking cups to the lampshade, you can create a textured, layered effect that catches the light and adds a touch of playful charm to your outdoor space. Amazing work!

IKEA SNUDDA Lazy Susan Transformed into a Glowing Wall Decoration with LED Strip Light

This stunning IKEA hack combines the versatile SNUDDA lazy Susan and an LED strip light to create a modern, illuminated wall decoration. By simply attaching the lazy Susan to your wall and adding a strip light behind it, you can transform any room with a subtle, enchanting glow that adds depth and interest to your space.

Typically used for serving or organizing, the lazy Susan takes on a whole new role as a wall-mounted decor piece. The circular shape and smooth rotation create a mesmerizing effect when paired with the soft illumination of the LED strip light.

What we love about this hack is how it creates a unique focal point that effortlessly blends form and function. The LED light not only adds a warm, inviting ambiance but also highlights the texture and material of the lazy Susan, making it a conversation starter and a true work of art.

A+ for creativity!

IKEA EKET Shelves Transformed into a Genius Storage Solution for Kids’ Bedrooms

  • MDF boards for the base

By combining the EKET shelves in a creative way and adding a sturdy MDF base, you can craft a storage unit that perfectly suits your child’s needs and seamlessly integrates with their bedroom decor.
