Ikea Hack...

Our sneak peak at the built in Drew is working on turned out to be very popular. We had quite a few request come in. Drew's cousin (hey Lindsay!) was asking about a more DIY storage solution. I had just read Centsational Girl's post about taking an ikea billy bookcase and making it look custom. I thought I would share it with everyone....



Her tutorial is excellent and you should check it out.

She actually has done two. Both are great.


Crown moulding, face framed and baseboard it looks incredible!


I have a client who is adding the Hemnes dresser to her living room. I would love to add this (can't find the original source... Help!) to the back to take it from stock to fabulous.

All sorts of ways to customize ikea furniture and make it your own!

Before I talk my husband out of work, I will remind you. Ikea furniture will not last as long. It doesn't have any actual wood to keep the lines straight and strong. There is only so much "customizing" you can do with the standard sizes they give you.


And last but not least... You can't overload your ikea furniture!
