Do It Yourself

IKEA Hack for the win!

We all know that IKEA can be a blessing or curse. I know that I’ve had my moments when I have wanted to pull out every strand of my hair in sheer agony at needing just 1¬†damn thing to leave with 7 or even 8.

I have always been a huge fan of their LACK tables and have upcycled them to cute little ottomans, that turned into sitting stools every time people came over. Seeing as we have moved into the new house, I decided that these sweet tables/ottomans need a facelift!

The vision was easy. We opted to sell our sectional and go with more relaxed set of random chairs in the living room. It keeps this large room open and inviting without cluttering into the dining room. After much discussion, we finally decided on a bench. It’s easy, modern, and the cushions are perfect for comfort.

It came out perfectly! Unfortunately, the whole DIY aspect came from David and his vision of what he could get accomplished with a few 1x4s. The painting was pretty labor intensive because of the dark color the legs were.

Overall, I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Now, its time to finish up that kitchen….
