Ultra Cool Storage
For this creative storage unit, start with two Ikea Ivar cabinets. The beauty of this piece is that you can personalize it in a number of ways. If you’re not a painter, just use wallpaper.
Boho Rattan Chair
Putting all the finishing touches on this magnificent chair admittedly takes some time, but the results are worth every moment of effort. And there’s a fascinatingly watchable GIF tutorial for inspiration.
Floor Lamp With a Pop Of Color
What could be more fun than assembling this ridiculously pretty floor lamp from an Ikea Sinnerlig pendant lamp? All you need is a lighting kit, premade furniture legs, spray paint, and glue.
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.
Who would’ve guessed that this expensive-looking built-in is actually comprised of Ikea Billy bookcases? Matching trim really brings the wow factor to the entire room.
Effortless Side Table
If you search “Ikea Lack hacks,” dozens of tutorials will appear. We like this one because of its ease, simplicity, and price tag. For a completely different look, cover it with marble contact paper or Stikwood.
Glamorous Bar Cart
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.
