Our latest (and greatest) DIY project for the site, hunker.com is a favorite of ours by far! I love the end project so much that I want to make a second one. Thinking that I just have to keep one at the studio and make another for home. 

We used the Ikea Brimnes cabinet in black and added cane webbing (or caning). Caning comes in different varieties of weave. For this project we used a radio weave, which is a simple pattern. There is also an open weave that is very popular.

What is cane webbing?

Cane webbing is a woven material mostly used to repair a chair seat. This material is part of the wicker family. 

Where to find cane webbing online

The radio weave caning (cane webbing) we used came from The Basket Maker’s Catalog online store

You can also find it on Etsy . More open weave options as well. 

Amazon also has shops that see the webbing. Most often it is easier to find the standard open weave. 

The Online Fabric Store also has options for caning.

This choice would also work well with adding the cane webbing. And don’t forget, you could also paint the cabinet. Wouldn’t an earthy green or slate blue look soooo good?! 

Ikea Hacks have become some of our favorite projects to work on. Like this Ikea Hack Alseda Stool to coffee table project. And this upholstered bench we use daily!

What is an Ikea Hack? 

An Ikea Hack is taking a piece of furniture or any item from Ikea and tweaking, altering or changing the piece to give it a bit of a transformation. Turning it into something a bit more high end looking is a favorite method that we love.
