IKEA hacks

Hacking Ikea furniture is hot in the decor world. The term to “hack” here means to re-do (pimp) IKEA furniture. Starting with rather boring avergae furniture, you can easily transform Ikea bargains to luxurious decor pieces in the living room. The best thing about hacking Ikea is that it is easy and cheap to make lots of effective changes.

Renovating furniture is the best budget tip I can give you – it’s also a great way of being creative. Friends and family are guaranteed to be impressed when they ask if that beautiful table was expensive and you answer “No, it was IKEA:)

I hope you’ve enjoyed my budget week! Have you made any bargains recently?

Have a great weekend! :)
