If you follow any home decor boards on Pinterest, you have likely seen a boring piece of Ikea furniture recreated or transformed into a much more expensive high-end looking piece.

This is called an “Ikea Hack.”  Some are as simple as adding a simple embellishment.  While some involve busting out the power tools.  In fact, there is an entire website called Ikea Hackers dedicated to such hacks.
