Checking out the new 2015 IKEA catalogue (US version) for cool DIY or decorating tricks from their stylists is always a fun hobby in these parts when it first comes out. It seems this year they are really offering up a heap of tricks (obvious or not). Here's a few that caught our eye!
1. Decoupage a Lampshade.
Not a new idea, but we like this idea for a craft room or workspace using newspaper gluing with Mod Podge to the REGOLIT lampshade. Tip: Find newspaper that has colours that you can tie in from in the room.

Add some personality to a plain table by taping a favorite washi tape colour to it. Shown: LINNMON table.
3. Recycled Herb Garden
Make a budget-friendly (and cool-looking) herb garden using recycled plastic pop bottles.
4. Decoupage a Cupboard
Another cute idea tying in with the lampshade, decoupaging newsprint to the back of a cupboard. Shown: IVAR Cabinet.

This is a cool idea using tea towels. As they say in the catalogue: "Just fold in half, sew along the sides and voilà!"
6. Make a Room Divider
An idea for a studio apartment or dorm. String fabric or yarn through a headboard to the ceiling to create an instant room divider. Shown: TARVA bed.
7. Plywood Pin Board

8. Make a Faux Wall
