I love Ikea. So versatile and just well, cheap. With a little tweak and not much effort here are some short cuts to turn your Ikea into incredible.
We’ll be doing more Ikea based posts in the future but to kick off here are 3 easy ways to customise some of your Ikea favourites.
When it comes to stickers we love Limmaland for all things child related. Brilliant and creative – and easy to do.
- Play mat for cars using our favourite Kallax bookshelves.
- Creative and simply brilliant Limmaland dolls house using Kallax shelves
- Limmaland Drom Stickers for Ikea Moppe mini chest of drawers
- Limmaland Cloudy Sky for Ikea Mosslanda ledges
For something a little more sophisticated, try Your Deco Shop
- Your Deco Shop Tiling pattern on a Ikea Lerhamn table
- Stars pattern set in grey and white, on Hemnes chest of drawers
- Confetti dots on Kallax shelves
If you’re overwhelmed by the thought of Stencilling, Royal Design Studio is the place to go. Not only do they have an extensive range of stencils but also has some excellent how to videos here and a useful source of supplies here.
- Update your Bekvam step stool with this Rattle and Roll Furniture Border Stencil
- Try these Triangles, using Royal Design Stencil Creme Paint over Annie Sloane Chalk paint, using Royal on a Hemnes Sideboard
- Subtle finishes using a small scrollallover stencil on a Hemnes chest of drawers
Not quite as easy as stickers but surprisingly simple none the less.
If you like the ‘shabby chic’ look, reach for the chalk paint. Our go-to for chalk paint is Annie Sloane. A guide of tips and techniques can be found here and products can be found here. Better still, if you don’t fancy doing it yourself just ask the lovely Chalk on Wood to do it for you! They can be found on www.sparemytime.com (Search under Home & Handy > Furniture> Chalk Paint).
What’s not to love about neon. Very on trend and perfect to give that Ikea furniture a fun and fashionable edge. Find neon paint via Amazon, here
