9 best Ikea hacks for every budget | Part 2

It turns out that many of you love Ikea as much as me! Given how popular my last post on this was, I thought I would share some more Ikea hacks that I have come across. 

For those of you that want to purchase items from Ikea but don’t want your house to look like everything has come from there, Ikea hacks are an amazing way to customise pieces.  

1. IKEA-HACK: STORAGE SOLUTION FOR A SMALL ROOM

Alice in Scandiland did an amazing job of transforming the Ikea IVAR range for her daughter’s bedroom. She’s created a whole system for the room, which is super clever and inventive. 

2. IKEA HACK: THE PLAY KITCHEN

My kids are too old for the Ikea DUKTIG now but if they were younger I would have so much fun with this. There are some amazing transformations that will make this little play kitchen look better than your own! 

3. MAGIC MUDROOM

Oh to have a good mudroom – all the wellies and rain coats in one stylish and practical space. Using the Ikea Hemnes TV unit and shelves this transformation is amazing and a lot less expensive that a bespoke carpentry job. Love the use of Providence Blue by Benjamin Moore!

4. GREEN AND BRASS DRESSER

Wow, a little paint and some new handles can make a huge difference. Ikea’s Hemnes dresser looks totally different after this hack. Add some green paint such as Frenchic’s Victory Lane or Farrow & Ball’s Green Smoke along with some brass handles. 

5. IKEA HACK: RATTAN CABINET

Another Ikea IVAR transformation. Make a cabinet look expensive and on-trend by adding cane webbing and hairpin legs. What a fab project this would be!

6. IKEA HACK: MODERN VERTICAL GARDEN

I’m pretty focused on trying to transform our outdoor space on a budget at the moment. So, this hack is major inspo! Made with, wait for it… Ikea bed slats!! How amazing is that? Super cheap bed slats painted and up on the garden fence.

7. IKEA HACK: SUCCULENT GARDEN ON A CART

The Ikea RASKOG is a great little cart on wheels, I’m sure there are many uses for this from kitchen utensils to baby changing supplies and arts and craft. I’ve seen so many uses for it but never have I seen it turned into an actual tiny garden. How gorgeous is this? 

8. Pine Dresser

From ordinary pine dresser to something spectacular! While this transformation takes a bit of DIY know-how, we think it might be one of our most favourite IKEA hacks, ever. You can find all the DIY instructions here.

9. Bed head

I love this clever bedhead idea by may.bennison.stylist. Taking the wooden Ikea bedhead and adding another on top makes a big impact. Stylish and functional (you can hang plants or have a clip on light on slats) I think this is a total winner.
