IKEA Hacks That Make Your Living Room Look Expensive
You might never guess that these furniture and decor projects all began their humble little lives wedged tightly into a cardboard box and stacked on metal industrial shelves deep in the bowels of an IKEA store. Here are a handful of recent hacks that began as budget basics, and ended up looking like a million bucks.
Leaning ladders are such a great and practical addition to bedrooms and living rooms. Not only to they look beautiful and sculptural against walls, but the vertical storage is A+. Courtney of Always Rooney figured out how to use some IKEA cabinet pulls as the cross pieces, and the black metal looks simple and chic with the wood.
The matte chalk paint finish used by We Are Scout on this IVAR cabinet hack gives it a sophisticated, polished look. The floral decoupage is a nice added touch.
To create these long “built-ins” in her home, Maiju used basic stock IKEA kitchen cabinets, trimmed out the doors, and painted them a soothing gray. What a stylish and timeless result, for an affordable price.
