1. IKEA Kallax turned Into a kitchen island. This couple couldn’t find a kitchen island that fit their space, so they made one out of a Kallax bookshelf! Just wait until you see what they used to make the countertop! Genius!


2. DIY burned IKEA cork trivets. Customised cork trivets like the ones pictured here can bring pizzaz to any kitchen table! These would also look perfect in my Dining Room!


3. DIY Industrial copper barn lights. Want to get that Fixer Upper look for your kitchen lighting without the price tag? Look no further, because this IKEA lighting hack is just what you need!


4. Rustic farmhouse style spice rack. I love this Ikea kitchen hack, because it not only provides a way for you to display your oils and spices together, but it saves space in your cupboards for other things!



5. DIY copper salt + pepper shakers. This simple Ikea hack is not only stunning, but it doesn’t even require any paint! Do you have any guesses as to what method they’re using to get the end result?

7. IKEA Duktig Play Kitchen Makeover. This play kitchen makeover is just beautiful… and it’s more affordable and easier to accomplish than a real kitchen renovation 😉


8. IKEA Step Stool Makeover. Now this is a step stool I’d be glad to see hanging out in the corner of my kitchen! How cute is this thing? Pretty handy too if the little ones might want to join in with the cooking!
