Okay, let’s dive in!

IKEA Bowl and Lamp Transformed into a Chic, Customizable Pendant Light

Illuminate your space with this brilliant IKEA hack that turns a simple bowl and lamp into a trendy, budget-friendly pendant light. The best part? You can customize the color to perfectly match your decor! Want an all-black look? Just spray-paint the entire bowl for a sleek, modern aesthetic.

This hack is as practical as it is stylish, with plenty of room between the bowls to easily change the light bulb. When attempting this project, work in a well-ventilated area, apply even coats of paint, and protect the electrical components for a safe and stunning result.

IKEA Wardrobe Transformed into a Stunning Built-In Closet with Moldings and Gold Hardware

Elevate your bedroom storage with this incredible IKEA wardrobe hack that looks like a custom built-in closet. By adding wooden moldings to the doors, MDF panels to the sides and top, and a touch of crown molding, you can create a luxurious and seamless look that will make your space feel like a million bucks.

The key to this transformation is in the details. Carefully cut and glue the wooden moldings onto the wardrobe doors, then paint them to match your desired aesthetic. The addition of MDF panels on the left, right, and top of the wardrobe creates a cohesive and polished appearance, while the crown molding at the top adds a touch of elegance.

To complete the look, swap out the standard handles for stunning gold hardware that will catch the eye and elevate the overall design.

IKEA Knagglig, Trofast, and Bekväm Transformed into a Charming Kitchen Storage Unit

Elevate your kitchen storage with this Pinterest-inspired DIY that combines IKEA Knagglig boxes, Trofast containers, and the Bekväm and Sunnersta set. No advanced skills needed – just paint and assemble!

Leave out the bottom and front of one Knagglig box, screw them together, and hang the Trofast box. Use the front panel boards to attach the remaining bottom as a back panel, then mount the spice rack.

IKEA Globe Light Transformed into a Stunning and Meditative Side Table

This IKEA hack combines creativity, math, and a touch of meditation. Transforming an IKEA globe light into a stunning side table is a fulfilling project and a way to quiet the mind and find a sense of calm in the DIY process.

The creator admits that their brain is often a whirlwind of ideas and inspirations, but the act of honing in on a concept, working through the process, and bringing it to life brings immense satisfaction.

Consider giving this hack a try and let your creativity be your guide.

IKEA PS FEJÖ Transformed into a Mobile Garden Umbrella Stand

Get ready to elevate your outdoor space with this clever IKEA hack combining the FEJÖ self-watering plant pot, a lazy Susan, and the Samso umbrella to create a mobile garden stand and side table. This versatile piece allows you to easily move your shade and entertaining area around the garden, adapting to your needs and the sun’s position throughout the day.

To create this hack, start by pouring concrete into the FEJÖ pot, which will provide a sturdy base for your umbrella. Cut a plastic pipe to the desired height and insert it into the middle of the concrete. Next, cut a hole in the center of the lazy Susan, allowing it to fit snugly over the pipe. This creates a functional side table surface that rotates, making accessing things like drinks or snacks easy.
