When push comes to shove, sometimes you need to sacrifice high quality for affordable. Enter Ikea. Even those that love high-end, great quality stuff tend to have at least a few items in their possession that come from the dime a dozen Swedish shop that we all love to hate but love. Got it? Hate it, love it, whatever – there are lots of really sweet DIY upgrades you can do to create kick ass, customized Ikea furnishings for your home. This DIY roundup is lovingly referred to the as Ikea Hack Parade. Enjoy!
This sofa hack is probably one of my favourites.
