Rustic Chic Headboard

The blogger who created this headboard masterpiece used a product called Stikwood to cover the Ikea Malm headboard. It’s a little more labor-intensive than some of the other projects, but your bedroom will look incredibly gorgeous when it’s finished.

Copper and Mint Nursery Dresser

We think this trendy dresser is just precious. It all starts with an Ikea Tarva dresser, but the dramatic improvements come from altering the legs, painting the piece, and adding modern hardware.

This bar cart looks like a million bucks, but it starts with an Ikea Laptop table. Jade paint and acrylic give it a modern flair. Not a drinker? Use it to hold pretty bath items, books, or coffee paraphernalia.
