Grippiks Surface Accents for Ikea

Customizing your Ikea furniture seems to be almost a given at this point, but if you're not too handy in the DIY department or don't have much time for another project, you might want to consider Grippiks.

Grippiks is patterned film cut to fit the Ikea classics (pieces from the Billy, Expedit, Lack and Malm lines, to name a few) that's applied to the surface of the furniture. According to the website, the film attaches via "microsuction" as opposed to a adhesive, so the Grippiks can be repositioned or removed without leaving any residue. Prices are in the $10-20 range plus shipping. We must admit we're intrigued, and the patterns are pretty cute, but it seems kind of... well, lazy. Would you try Grippiks, or do you prefer a true DIY solution?
