      Hi Melissa! Thanks so much for your sweet comment on the new design…I know you understand the work involved in that!

      Your Ikea hack is awesome! I could use a little organization like that!

    Hello Kim;

    I recently just created an original IKEA Hack for a vertical storage bin, to hold artist’s canvas and framed artwork. This design is MUCH cheaper than purchasing a bin from an art supply shop. The free step-by-step instructions are on the IKEA Hackers website:


    I’m using it to store my own artwork and supplies. It is sturdy, big enough to hold LOTS of materials and was super inexpensive to make!

    Hi Kim!

    Thanks again,

    I just recently did my own Ikea Hack!

    I bought 2 Expedit shelves turned them on their sides, ordered seat foam online and delivered to the front in the exact size which was stapled with Ikea fabric to a board and secured to the shelves. I now have a corner bench seat with storage baskets! Love it!!!

    You are the bestest!

    Hi Kim,
    We are Ikea crazed in this family. One summer my 7 year old was away for the summer so we decided to redo her room. I’d like to share a photo but I’m new to sharing (help). We used two shelving units, a piece of wood and wood trim to create this look in her bedroom. You may see (quite a few) other Ikea elements in the room. :-)

    I will be going through each and every one of these hacks!
