Inspiring Ikea Hacks!

1 Comment

So what is Ikea hacking?  Sounds illegal?  Actually it is a fun way to create beautiful things for your home while saving money.  Many people do it!  You simply start with an inexpensive purchase from Ikea and doctor it up.

The Ikea Rast chest of drawers for $34.99 is a great starting point for many as it is made from solid wood.  I am showing three examples here.  The first one is from “A Charming Nest” which also shows the before picture of the Rast chest of drawers.

Another great overhaul is from Aubrey and Lindsay in Canada, as explained on their little HOUSE BLOG


And the third example is a very glamorous version with silver fronts from hodge-podge.  Want more examples?  Go to apartmenttherapy for even more inspiration and awesome transformations!    

Personally, I think it’s time to schedule a trip to Ikea.  Rast here I come!
