You can’t correctly pronounce the name of a single piece of furniture, you’ve got a secret stash of those little hexagonal wrenches and thoughts of mini meatballs smothered in lingonberry sauce dance through your head.
You’re an Ikea addict, and your home look something like a photospread from the Swedish super-store’s catalogue. Even though you already marvel at the genius behind the Billy bookcase’s connectivity and the Besta storage combos, the brilliance of Ikea’s products doesn’t stop there.
Check out how these Ikea hacks for kids’ rooms add flourishes of functionality and even allow you to upcycle!

As if turning a simple spice rack into a bookshelf wasn’t cool enough, On the Banks of Squaw Creek’s Ikea hack adds little Bekvam’s to the side of a dresser to make a cool kids’ combo!
