#1 – IKEA Vase Hack

Why we like it: The IKEA vase hack, with its simple addition of moss and natural elements, offers a nice touch for seasonal transition into winter decor. It’s a clever and earthy approach to home styling. It’s such an easy and affordable hack that anyone can do.

#2 – IKEA Billy Hack

Why we like it: This DIY IKEA hack transforms BILLY shelves into a custom ‘place built’ bookshelf, giving off a tailored, integrated look. Resourcefully sourced from IKEA’s bargain section and second-hand markets, it’s eco-conscious and budget-friendly, especially if you plan to repaint. The process involves:

  1. Preparing an even base to counteract uneven floors and to elevate the shelves for added dimension.
  2. Securing the shelves together and to the wall, followed by meticulous sanding to prepare for painting – a step that’s crucial for paint adhesion and longevity.
  3. Filling unused shelf holes with a choice of filler or linseed oil putty, depending on your preference for ease versus finish.
  4. Adding mirror panels to enhance the bespoke, ‘built-in’ feel, with a how-to available further down their feed.

It’s a practical guide for anyone looking to create a custom bookshelf with a professional finish.

#3 – IKEA Pax Hack

Why we like it: The elegant transformation of Ikea Pax units into built-in wardrobes caught our eye for its smart design and refined finish. The use of Grimo doors and stylish handles from Yesterhome, all tied together with a tasteful white hue, exemplifies a sophisticated DIY approach. Well done!

#4 – IKEA Ivar Hack

Why we like it: This IVAR hack showcases a clever and practical approach to nursery organization. The use of crates for sorting essentials like rompers and socks, alongside dedicated spaces for hanging clothes and storing shoes, is efficient and thoughtful.

What really adds charm are the decorative frames from the construction market, which give a unique and personalized touch to the unit. It’s smart storage with a flair that keeps everyday necessities at hand and also manages to look great in the space.

#5 – IKEA Nursery Hacks

Why we like it: The showcase of 4 #ikeahacks for the nursery captures a blend of creativity and practicality. It’s always exciting to see how standard IKEA items can be transformed to add a unique touch to any space.
