10+ New DIYS + Hacks from IKEA's Stylists


It's been a minute, but I'm back with another set of fun hacks and ideas I've collected over the past while from the stylists at IKEA.  Sadly they have closed their Livet Hemma website which was always filled with so much beautiful inspiration, so it's been a little harder to find new projects on their website. But here's a few that have crossed the radar. Check them out below!

1. DIY Bureau Goes Old School
Turn a RAST dresser into an old filing cabinet look. I would love to see this in it's original pine.

2. Give Your Dresser New Life
A MALM dresser gets a new look using fabric. Click here for the video.

3. Industrial to Elegant
A HYLLIS Shelf gets an upgrade with a little help from some paint and mesh board.

4. Upgrade Your Plates
Create unique tableware from your white plates using ceramic paints.

5. IVAR Folding Screen
We've seen this concept before with the IVAR dressers. Turn IVAR end frames into a folding screen.

By placing the carpet in the centre of the room, it creates a lighter, spacious feel.
