Welcome to the top 5 IKEA hacks of the week – March 16th Edition

Okay, let’s dive in!

1. Transforming TORKAD Paper Towel Holders into a Chic Side Table

This unique IKEA hack showcases how you can turn the humble TORKAD paper towel holders into a stylish side table. By combining the SNUDDA lazy Susan and three TORKAD holders, you can create a unique piece of furniture that reflects your creativity and elevates your home decor.

The SNUDDA lazy Susan is a versatile and practical IKEA item that serves as the perfect tabletop for this hack.

The TORKAD paper towel holders, act as the table’s legs. By simply screwing the holders into the SNUDDA, you can create a base that raises the lazy Susan to a comfortable height.

A+ for creativity!

2. IKEA EKET Cube Hack: Create a Stylish and Affordable DIY Table

This clever IKEA hack transforms the versatile EKET cube into a chic and functional table, perfect for any living space. By combining the cube with an MDF board and a few simple materials, you can create a custom piece that reflects your personal style and fits your budget.

The EKET cube, available in a variety of colors, serves as a sturdy base for the table. To ensure the tabletop is thick enough, you can glue two MDF boards together, as the creator did, to achieve a 4cm thickness. This extra step adds stability and visual weight to the table.

To give the tabletop a unique, industrial look, the creator used primer, cement effect paint, and sandy paste from @pinturas_lapajarita. These products create a textured, matte finish that adds character and depth to the table.

Great wok on this one!

3. Transforming the IKEA BLÅSER Mirror with a Unique Base

This creative IKEA hack breathes new life into the simple BLÅSER mirror. By pairing the mirror with an unexpected base, such as a side table, you can create a one-of-a-kind decor item that reflects your personal style and adds character to your space.

The key to this transformation lies in the choice of base. In this case, the creator repurposed a side table which was super clever. This approach makes the mirror appear larger, enhancing its presence in the room. We love the final look of this hack!

4. Raised Dog Bowl Hack: Customizable IKEA Bowl Stand

This clever IKEA hack is perfect for pet owners who want to create a stylish and functional raised dog bowl stand. By combining some wood, paint, glue, and two IKEA bowls, you can craft an adorable feeding station that not only looks great but also promotes better digestion and comfort for your furry friend. Great idea!

5. Kids’ Art Station with FLISAT Table and SKÅDIS Pegboard

This creative IKEA hack transforms the FLISAT children’s table and SKÅDIS pegboard into a fun and functional crafting and painting station. The result of short nights and a burst of creativity, this art station demonstrates how everyday items can be reimagined to create a space that encourages children’s artistic expression.

The FLISAT table provides a sturdy, spacious surface for projects, while the SKÅDIS pegboard, mounted above, offers convenient storage for art supplies. The pegboard’s hooks, shelves, and containers keep materials organized and accessible, allowing children to explore their creativity without the hassle of searching for supplies.
