It’s a rare home that doesn’t have a little IKEA in it. Hacking IKEA furniture has become a sport for design-loving nuts such as ourselves. There’s no shortage of creativity and ingenuity but we also like to see the simple hacks that give a lot of bang for the buck. If you haven’t yet heard of O’verlays, jump below and take a look at what they can do.

Carol of The Design Pages transformed this very plain Trondheim dresser using the magic of lightweight, fretwork panels and paint. It’s an easy way to add some luxe to IKEA pieces. O’verlays has created an entire line of designs to choose from. Check out their website for photos. For details and photos of how Carol pulled off this dramatic Before and After, run over to her blog The Design Pages.
