What's that saying? The two-in-the-hand thing? Oh, right... Two IKEA pieces in your apartment are worth more than that one pricey designer piece you keep passing up in the showroom. If you're after a tall planter, big rug or a farmhouse-style table, you might be able to get the look you want for cheap. Just buy up some IKEA goods two at a time and glue, sew or nail them together.
