My Love Below

IKEA hacked!

I have a few IKEA items in my home. My favorite being the EXPEDIT shelving unit, featured below. It holds all the trucks blocks, art supplies and odds and ends Miles holds dear.

I’ve seen a lot of creative IKEA hacks, but the cutest hack I have ever seen was created by Freckles Chick for her daughter Quinn. She transformed an IKEA Latt table and chairs into the perfect activity table.

I never thought of transforming the set we purchased for a whopping $20 into an art escape, since Miles loves to color and paint. We tried using it as a dinner table, but the pressed wood table top didn’t hold up. Quinn’s table even includes supply holders and a paper roll to create endless masterpieces. Genius!

This is what they started with:

Boring . . .

and the finished product complete with chair pads:

Swoon.

The hubby and I have our own transformation project that is set to commence soon. It’s sure to be loads of fun . . . and hard work. More to come soon.
