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.
Ikea dressers are a great staple to have in your home, but they can be kind of dull. The Ikea Koppang dresser is plain white, but looks amazing when dressed up with gold trim and hardware.
The Tarva dresser is transformed into an ombre wonder. This would be so amazing in a girl’s room!
Finally, the Rast dresser is given a makeover to look similar to a very expensive Dorothy Draper dresser.
The options are endless for transforming Ikea dressers. From changing out the hardware to adding detailed paneling, let your imagination soar!
The Vittsjo shelving unit is basic black with glass. It looks like a million bucks when painted gold.
Ikea’s Billy bookcases are beyond plain and ordinary, but when molding and overhead lighting is included, they look like expensive built-ins.
Aren’t these transformations amazing?
Stay tuned as I will be posting this week about the most “beautiful” Ikea hacks and the Ikea Family Program!
