Why we like it: Well, isn’t this a clever refresh? Took that old Kallax IKEA unit, added a bit of paint, some trims, and voila!

It’s like breathing new life into an old friend. Love how you can tailor it to your own style, choosing the shape and color.

Why we like it: Taking an IKEA PAX wardrobe and giving it such a thoughtful makeover is truly inventive.

By crafting a base with adjustable legs and then surrounding the assembled PAX units with an MDF frame, the entire piece gets that sought-after built-in appearance.

Adding baseboards was the cherry on top, making the transformation seamless. It’s a perfect blend of elegance and practicality, offering a storage solution with a custom feel.

#3 – IKEA Blanda Matt Side Table

Why we like it: Taking the IKEA BLANDA MATT and turning it into a side table with a twist is very creative. And honestly, who hasn’t gone a little overboard with their IKEA purchases?

It’s all in good fun, especially when it leads to such unique DIY projects.

With just planters, rope, and rechargeable lights equipped with motion sensors, you’ve created a piece that’s both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

#5 – IKEA Kallax Breakfast Island

Why we like it: Using two IKEA KALLAX units to create a breakfast island is a smart and stylish move. The transformation is impressive, turning basic shelving into a functional gathering spot.

The chosen color, combined with the wooden top, adds warmth and character to the piece. Additionally, the incorporation of basket storage is not only practical but also adds a touch of rustic charm.

This project is a great example of blending functionality with design aesthetics.
