Best IKEA Hacks

DIY Wall Mounted Easel using all IKEA Products

Head to the blog post above to see how I used about $10 worth of IKEA products to create this wall mounted easel.  It has been 2 years since I put this up for my kids on Christmas Eve, and remains a favorite part of our home!

IKEA Billy Bookcase built ins

DIY Built-in Units using IKEA Billy Bookcases

These built ins are in my home office and have been hands down my favorite DIY we have ever done.  It has held up amazingly, and added SO MUCH to the room.  

If you are intimidated by the idea of clicking over to see this one, know that my husband and I are not super handy, so know that it’s NOT HORRIBLY HARD!

Large Framed Engineering Prints

$5 Large Framed Prints

I love these fun framed engineering prints – this post tells you how to get each print for about $5.  These are visible as soon as you walk in my front door and truly make a great impact.

If you are looking for a fun way to add to a wall for a super low price, this is the way to do it!

Update your IKEA step stool in 10 minutes

This was a quick little DIY, but such a fun way to add to the step stool!

ikea bunk beds against green wall

Update these bunk beds from IKEA for an inexpensive option for your kids room

This is another serious favorite IKEA hack.  Jack no longer has this room, which makes me a little sad, because it was a favorite.  (this room is now Goldie’s nursery).  The bunk beds looked so much more fun in white!

In the same room as the bunk beds I did this super fun IKEA hack for a small desk as well as this LEGO storage system.  We are planning on moving this year and I will be using this system in the boys rooms again because of how much I loved it!

It would also work really well for LOL dolls or something of the sort!

pink Ikea dresser

IKEA Dresser Hack

This IKEA dresser hack is one of my favorite items in my house.  I was able to take a super inexpensive dresser and turn it into a gorgeous piece in Goldie’s nursery.

I turned the IKEA Tarva into this gorgeous pink dresser using paint, and a couple of added accessories that totally changed it!
