IKEA Hackers: Interior Design Inspiration

Post inspired by Kristina Mirasol’s Interior Decoration post.

Sorry for being so utterly MIA (missing-in-action), this school term has been a lot more difficult to get through emotionally, mentally, and academically than expected. While I am not ready to specifically divulge details yet, big changes are coming in the next 5 weeks or so as I round the bend to graduation.

Anyways, I am actually relaxing for once, visiting my sister in DC/VA area this weekend. We went to visit Ikea for giggles, and this website came up in conversation.

http://www.ikeahackers.net/

IKEA Hackers is a website dedicated to “modifications on and repurposing of Ikea products,” as the About section of the website says. Essentially, users submit posts on how they creatively use or put together Ikea furniture in a way that the company did not advertise or intend that piece to be used. It’s great for some funky and unique furniture ideas and increasing storage capacity.

Being a DIYer and crafting junkie, of course I have been oogling this website all weekend long. While not all the projects posted may suit your style or be practical to make yourself, here are a few that I think are worth mention.

The “Tertial Chandelier”

The “Wood scraps headboard”

transformable coffee table

This is my favorite! The “Knuff Transformable Coffee table” made with magazine racks and a stool.

And of course, any unfinished pieces of wood can be easily customizable with regards to color and design using a bit of paint, fabric, or mod-podging scrapbook paper! I am personally digging the industrial looking, distressed looks lately rather than bold and bright colors with girly themes like I usually do.
