DIY Trivet Tray IKEA Hack

I’m back with a brand new IKEA hack! This time, I tried my hand at a design concept that’s a little new to me—that is, simple. This DIY heat-resistant trivet tray is just about as neutral and easy-going as it gets around these parts, what with its lack of pink, glitter, and pom-poms, but I think we…

IKEA Hack: Cork Trivets to Painted Photo Frames

Happy Friday! I’m so excited to have an easy, stress-free weekend ahead of me (knock on wood). I’ve got a couple of craft projects to work on and a few things to catch up on around the house, but generally, my plan is to stay in pjs all day and to kick back with a…

DIY Grundtal Bar IKEA Hack + Coffee Bar Styling

The bad news? It’s Monday. The bad news? I threw my back out some point between last night and this morning. Truth be told, I’m sitting here typing this in my PJs, a towel rolled up and wrapped around my neck, secured with a piece of duct tape (I am a DIYer after all!). It’s…

IKEA Hacked Decoupaged Tray

This project felt like such a throwback to me. The word “decoupage” immediately brings up images of elementary school art class and a gaggle of tiny girls cutting and pasting paper to create their own inadvertently abstract masterpieces. Well my adult take on the art form was a little more calculated—yet still so simple that a…

DIY Geometric Welcome Mat Ikea Hack

With so much of our time being spent outdoors these days, I’m finding myself drawn more and more to exterior DIY projects. Case in point, our brand new DIY welcome mat. It all started with a natural straw mat picked up from IKEA for just $5. My initial plan was to give it a customized paint…

To remedy the situation without breaking the bank, I decided to make the most of on-hand crafting supplies and a little inspiration gleaned from one of my favorite dynamic designer duos—Joy Cho and Emily Henderson. Since…

IKEA Hack: One Leggy Gold Desk

IKEA may just be my version of heaven. Funky finishes and patterns you can’t get anywhere else, the perfect (and I mean perfect) white frame, affordable organization and those PRICES – not to mention an “As Is” section full of pieces they’re practically giving away. Case in point my studio desks. These actually came to…

Hack IKEA Baskets Into Succulent Shelves

While I’m well aware that not everyone can get on board with the faux plant trend, I can’t help but appreciate the whole “zero maintenance” aspect of the idea. I tend to struggle with keeping live plants, well…alive…so you’ll find silk plants tucked all around our house. It’s not just because I missed out on…

How to Upgrade Your IKEA BILLSTA Table

You know by now that I’m a pretty big fan of Ikea hacks, right? That particular Big Box store has so many amazing deals on furniture, but the truth is that the most cost effective pieces in their collection are kind of on the bland side. They fit our meager budget, definitely, but are they…
