Something magical happens every time I enter an IKEA store. I am immediately inspired by all of the gorgeous room layouts, and home decor ideas. I could literally walk around the store all day! IKEA is known for being cost friendly, and for taking a basic approach to design in their home furnishings.
These designs are the perfect platform for a little DIY enhancing! With just a tiny bit of elbow grease, you can create eye-catching home decor pieces yourself. Use these IKEA hacks to take your living space to the next level!

Who remembers the classic rattan chair that our grandmothers used to have? (My grandma still has her by the way!) Well, it is making a comeback, and Ikea is leading the way. For the perfect accent piece, add colorful strips of jersey and yarn to this Ikea Rattan chair.
DIY IKEA Tarva Dresser Transformation
Turn a basic wooden Ikea Tarva Dresser into a classy designer looking piece. This one requires a little bit of handy work, but the results are so worth it! The transformation is so great, I can’t believe this is even the same dresser!

These color block curtains may be my favorite hack on this list! They are so elegant, and easy to make. The best part about them is that they don’t require you to sew. You literally just take black fabric and fuse it together with the curtain panel to make them longer and add a pop of color!
IKEA Side Table Makeover

Take a plain solid colored side table from boring to trendy with the help of masking tape and some spray paint. This would make the perfect accent table to compliment any room in your home.

These Dalfred IKEA bar stools are fairly inexpensive, to begin with. Make them look more sophisticated by using a handy bottle of gold spray paint. With very little effort, the gold color makes them look a lot more expensive than they really are!
DIY Office Shelves & Pegboard
Using IKEA Bekvam Spice Racks as the shelves, you can transform an ordinary pegboard into extra office or study space. This idea is so clever, and perfect when you are working with a small living space!
