Changing up furniture 

We love to update or change furniture we have. Sometimes they are Ikea Hacks, other times just adding a fresh new coat of paint. Take a look at some of our favorites from the blog…

Ikea Hack Mudroom Storage Bench 

This BESTA Ikea hack is a favorite! We took the BESTA frame, added Ikea cabinet doors and a wood top. Screw in some legs at the base. We made an upholstered hanging pad using plywood, foam and an Ikea blanket. Then hand it from the wall using leather straps.

Mudcloth Ikea Bench

Another day, another bench! I use this bench in my bedroom now. Typically it has clothes on it =) It is an Ikea bench that we added an upholster top to, coving with authentic mud cloth fabric. 

IKEA Hack Brimnes Cabinet with caning

This Ikea hack is an all time favorite! We took the Brimnes cabinet and cut out the inside of the doors. Added caning material to the inside and new hardware.
