You know we can't resist a good, stylish IKEA hack. I'm talking about the ones that help your furniture become what the Scandinavian gods truly intended, fulfilling its destiny as super stylish decor. Multiply that by ten and you have today's post: 10 regular IKEA products that have been tweaked and wrangled into a different, more magnificent existence.
1. A fabric pouf sewn by Kristi Murphy using an IKEA ottoman as the base.
2. Livet Hemma pimped regular wooden cutting boards into something leathery and gift worthy.
3. A couple of easy tweaks make this IKEA kitchen in Lonny look custom: DIY leather handles (39 cents each) and black toe kicks.
4. This is an easy DIY lighting project using a lamp kit and a bowl, from A Beautiful Mess.
5. The always stylish Bambula blog made a similarly simple light, this time with a basket as the shade.
6. Faux vinyl ostrich made this Rast dresser more luxe and interesting for Pam from Simple Details
7. This IKEA shelf was turned on its head and made more personal with the help of stained wood decking. From Bolig Pluss
itself created this ode to Mondrian by painting their Micke computer work station in bold blocks of primary color.
9. Jenny Komenda completely transformed a Pax wardrobe into this chic, luxurious storage system, via Domino
. Definitely click through to see more of this beauty.
10. This Expedit, shared on IKEA Hackers
