Let’s dive in!

1. Festive IKEA Hack – Vinter 2020 Bowl

Why we like it: What a cute and festive IKEA hack using the VINTER 2020 bowl with lid. It’s a creative and easy way to sprinkle some Christmas cheer around.

It’s always great to see how a simple IKEA piece can be turned into something special and festive with a little imagination!

2. IKEA Rodeby Armrest Tray to Create a Beautiful Trim

Why we like it: Using the RÖDEBY armrest tray to create a beautiful trim above their board and batten wall, now that’s a creative twist! It’s really something, using a simple bamboo tray for wall decor. This kind of ingenuity is what makes DIY so fun and rewarding.

Even though it’s not finished, this sneak preview promises something special. Can’t wait to see the finished look!

3. IKEA Moppe as a Craft Table

Why we like it: The idea of using the IKEA Moppe as a craft table, accessible and at the perfect height for little ones, is great. It encourages creativity and independence while teaching organization.

Here’s what’s used in this hack:

  • IKEA Moppe
  • Strandmon legs
  • Sunnersta hooks
  • Soundest container
  • Small action boxes with lids

It’s a practical, stylish, and fun way to set up a crafting area that your kids will love, and it fits right into the home without being too intrusive. Plus, the joy of seeing little ones engaged in creative activities in their special space is priceless!

4. IKEA Kallax Upcycle

Why we like it: This IKEA KALLAX upcycle is a brilliant example of repurposing furniture with a twist. Turning a KALLAX unit upside down to create a coffee table with storage is both inventive and practical.

The choice of ‘Salt Of Earth’ paint and ‘Browning Wax’ for the top adds a refined touch to the piece.

Using leftover timberboard and purchasing additional materials for the lid shows resourcefulness. Impressive work!

5. IKEA IVAR Play House

Why we like it: The IVAR Play House idea is a charming and innovative use of space. Transforming the IKEA IVAR dresser into a playful display for Playmobil and Sylvanian Family houses is creative and fun.

Decorating the ‘sky’ of the dresser with decorative snow and a chain of lights to create a starry effect adds a magical touch. The addition of a star completes this magical scene.

The practical aspect of this hack, where the houses are both displayed and accessible for play, is clever for a small room. Well done!
