It doesn’t take a professional to transition a piece of Ikea furniture into something jaw-droppingly amazing. All you need is some imagination, a sprinkle of creativity, and some supplies to get the job done. So pick a weekend, choose a home hack, and get down to business. Some awesome ideas are outlined for you below.
If you have a green thumb, this indoor DIY greenhouse is our best suggestion for your next weekend project. Purchase a glass Ikea cabinet with any dimensions that work for your space. But instead of using it for storage, transform it into a greenhouse. Use it as a starter home for seasonal plants, then move them outdoors when the weather is nice enough, or keep them inside year-round.
Rattan Cabinet Doors
Rattan is all the rage in 2023, giving rooms a more natural feel. So consider taking an Ikea cabinet or dresser, popping out the wooden panels, and swapping them with rattan. You will need a hefty staple gun to affix the rattan sheets. Tip: Do not wet-stretch the caning. Pulling it tight should be sufficient.
Try this office storage bin hack on for size. Purchase an Ikea ottoman with a lift top and fill it with inexpensive storage inserts. That way, you can have the best of both worlds: an ottoman to kick your feet up after a long day and storage for all your notes, files, and pens.
Faux Fancy Mirror
A fancy mirror could be expensive, so consider making your own at home instead. Purchase whatever plain mirror you like best from Ikea, then head to your local craft store for cardboard, faux pearls or diamonds, and spray paint. There are many videos on YouTube and TikTok to teach you this quick trick, and you can get it done in under a few hours!
If you have flat-surfaced drawers on your nightstands or dressers, think about sprucing them up by adding some temporary wallpaper. Simply purchase some peel-and-stick wallpaper, cut the pieces to fit the shape and size of the drawer, and voilà! Instant upgrade.
