YOU just gotta love IKEA…No matter what we go in to the Swedish Mega store to purchase..it seems we all come out with a few more Brown Flat Packs & Allen Key Sets than we bargained for… Always…
Well now, lets add some decorator savvy to our standard IKEA pieces..and take it up a notch..or 2..
Take this Ikea Eterge below, Its come standard in black or white….A few spray cans of gold paint later..and Voila!..a perfectly Parisian Vignette for the most discerning of home decorators…I have actually tried this..and it worked..and it looks fab!
Next item hot on the DYI trend..is Motif Decals..Purchased fro the USA, these amazing O’verlays are lightweight, decorative fretwork panels. You can paint them and attach easily to the furniture, Bookshelves or Mirrors….Instant Upgrade…. Without Cashing in your FF Points…Love. Love. Love.
And finally..The Pièce_de_Résistance. ..Inspired by the Edgy Slightly Punky Grafitti Days….the IKEA Dresser….which comes in Plain Pine and can be Dressed how ever you like..Let the kids go crazy with the paint tubes in Neon colours…and watch their Creativity flow ..and flow….
