Before & After: IKEA Gets a Wallpaper Treatment

Kris's Color Stripes

In cities that have an IKEA, their furniture is found in many homes. While there's nothing wrong with this affordable option, that doesn't mean your pieces have to look like those everywhere else in your city. Check out what these BESTA cabinets after Kris was through with them!

Kristina Klarin isn't one for plain and boring. She is all about making a splash with color and these cabinets were slightly lack luster before she got a hold of them.

With the help from a little wallpaper, these cabinets now look like a large reclaimed wooden sideboard (a la Piet Hein Eek) and make quite a statement in the room. Don't forget to think about wallpaper on items other than walls, especially since high priced designer rolls can be affordable when you don't need to buy twelve of them, you just need one to complete a project! Check out more on this project over at Kris's Color Stripes.
