Is anybody else sick of all the cheesy orange Halloween decor that's filling every craft store? I know I am. So I decided to try making a more modern wreath for Halloween. And get this - it's an IKEA hack! This wreath is made out of a Ribba picture frame, and covered with pretty paper flowers. Click through to check out the final product and the full tutorial.
Kristi admits that this particular makeover isn't the thriftiest, but compared to the $1,300 West Elm Inspiration pictured above, it is. To get the look, Kristi started with an IKEA Stockholm walnut veneer sideboard like
IKEA has long been a great source for inexpensive home wares, and people have been creating hacks out of those products for almost as long. And some of those hacks are so unique that it's difficult to tell they're even IKEA products. Click through to check out ten of our favorite such hacks.
Let's not deny it: IKEA is filled to the brim with awesome pieces that we just can't walk away from.

This isn't the first time Anika's IKEA IVAR cabinet has undergone a transformation. The first time involved a can of white spray paint and knobs that matched those in her kitchen, as she used it as an extension
If I had to pick the most versatile IKEA product, it would definitely be one of the stools. The Marius, Frosta and Bekvam are three of the most popular IKEA stools ... and boy do they ever have a lot of uses. So today we're sharing ten of our favorite IKEA stool hacks with you. Keep reading to check them out.
For the last two months we've been running non-stop on the design treadmill trying to get our new studio ready for its debut. We've replaced floors, demolished walls, painted, and done a handful of unconventional cosmetic fixes in order to get the space in 'blank slate' order. From there, came a two-week self-imposed game of "which design road should we take today", as we've slowly cobbled things together. The good news is that we're getting...
The IKEA Lack is the one table to rule them all. It comes in a series of colors, and is known as a chameleon! The Lack is highly customizable and, for ten bucks, you'd be crazy not to purchase one of your own! If you're in need of inspiration, check out this roundup of unrecognizable tables!
IKEA's FROSTA Stool has become a staple item for the retailer. Why is the design so popular? Probably because they're incredibly versatile as they can work in a living room as easily as a child's bedroom; they're stackable so they
This month we're talking about IKEA hacks here at Curbly, so I have another double hack for you today. The moment I saw the JANSJÖ task light, I knew I had to have it - and make it cuter, of course. Keep reading to check out my bohemian chic IKEA hack.
This formerly plain and boring JANSJÖ task lamp is powered by a USB port so you can light up your work space without having to rely on having an electrical outlet nearby. And now that it has a fun pink color and an adorable wicker shade, I can do my work in style!
Here's what you'll need for this project:
Set aside the larger two baskets from the LJUSNAN set, you'll only need the small one for this project. Wrap painter's tape around the bottom of the basket and on the interior, so there is a stripe of wicker around the top that is exposed. Tape off the light bulb section of the JANSJÖ along with the metal part of the USB port.
Spray paint the exposed areas using multiple thin coats of paint. Let them dry thoroughly. Remove all of the painter's tape.
Use a utility knife to cut a slit in the center of the bottom of the basket. Slip the USB end of the light up through the slit so that the bulb ends up inside the wicker "shade." Widen the slit if it doesn't pull through easily.
Secure the light to the basket using a bit of hot glue around the base of the cord.
And your double IKEA hack is complete! So cute, right? I keep it right on my desk and plug it into my laptop when I need a bit of extra light for writing notes or doing crafts.
The light is pleasantly bright, and the wicker shade prevents you from accidentally looking directly at the bulb.
Which you'd want to avoid, because it's bright!
The JANSJÖ also comes as a larger table lamp, a clip lamp and a floor lamp (all of which are powered by a regular electrical outlet) so there are a lot of different variations that you could do. Just use one of the larger LJUSNAN baskets!
Hope you enjoyed this unique project, stayed tuned for more IKEA-related fun later this month!

At $4.99 US, IKEA's Marius stool must be one of the least expensive pieces of furniture that the retailer sells. With that in mind check out this project that elevates the lowly stool to new heights, thanks to a chunk of tree stump. The tutorial couldn't be easier. Take the Marius apart and reassemble/attach the legs to the chunk of stump. Okay, it's a little more involved than that, but I'll let Burkatron explain that.
