Hello!
Those $9.99 baskets from Ikea aren’t just great for storing toys: In the hands of some creative customers, they’re a canvas that come alive with paintings of alligators and stars. Welcome to the world of Ikea hacking!
While Ikea hasn’t always had the happiest relationship with people who hacked the brand’s furniture, these days, the brand is all in on the hacking trend. On the brand’s social channels, it now shares creative ways customers have changed, altered, or tweaked designs. We’ve picked some of our favorite hacks, and they might even inspire some of your own interior decorating adventures. (I’m definitely trying out the book nook on a budget!)
