1. Gorgeous craftroom desk
Stacey Cartwright of Addison Meadow Lane used Ikea’s Rast 3-Drawer Chest to create this gorgeous craftroom desk. The original chest was $25. Besides the chest the supplies they bought were: a quart of white paint, 6 carter wheels, a hollow core door, a piece of plexi glass, a plastic sheet cutter, some gold spray paint, some pallet wood, some screws, an impact drill, and a circular saw.
2. Malm Midcentury Modern Dresser
Sarah Khandjian of SarahHearts created this mid-century modern dresser from the $170 Malm Dresser, some overlays by O’verlays (a fantastic website geared specifically toward die-cut ornamentation to add to specific ikea furniture!), some paint, knobs, and glue.
3. Barnboard coffee table
Jen of City Farmhouse took Ikea’s Hemnes Coffee Table for $139 and transformed it into this rustic coffee table. To the original product, Jen added 2 different paints, some boards, wood stain, nails, and a clear coat of wax.
4. Banquette seat
Krys of Melodrama ingeniously made a seating bench with cubbies from a $59.99 shelving unit turned on its side. She used a home made headboard, foam, fabric, and paint.
5. Gold and white nightstand
This luxurious gold-and-white nightstand by The World According to Jessica Claire was made from the $89.99 Tarva 3-Drawer Chest. She does not disclose what she used in this upgrade, however I believe it was white paint, new drawer knobs, gold paint, and one of O’verlay‘s amazing diecut ornaments.
