20 Best Ikea Hacks For Your Home

Did you ever have a piece of furniture that you felt was just too plain and had no real style to it? You love it, because it's so functional...but it's somewhat blah and bleh.

That would have been me with this white bookcase that I'm looking at as we speak. I should say...as I speak, because I'm writing and hopefully you are reading :-) I've talked about my French Modern Home Office that was done on a tight budget in this REVEAL POST and in the UPDATE POST and I think that you'll find them interesting. There are lots of tutorials associated with this office for you to learn from...including SEWING to

REUPHOLSTERING to even PAINTING A WOOD FLOOR.  I hope that you don't run away too soon and spend some time exploring those posts when you can. 

But the pièce de résistance in my direct view and the most useful item in my home office is the bookshelf. It started out life very humdrum and plain and now I think it fits in so nicely and has more pizazz. It was so easy to transform this IKEA BILLY BOOKCASE ("hack") and I've written a DIY complete with power tools HERE. As always, I get the vision and my husband does the power tools and it's nice having a partnership as we have together.

Before I run I wanted to share what some other talented bloggers have come up with from IKEA and most of these hacks require just a paint brush and some paint.
It's just amazing how creative you can be without spending beaucoup bucks and Ikea is such a fantastic source for inexpensive pieces to transform!
