My ‘Dining room to Den’ makeover is featured on the IkeaHackers website
I’ve been published on IkeaHackers!
I submitted my ‘Dining room to den’ study makeover to IkeaHackers.net last month and I am delighted to say it was posted last week. The article contains step-by-step instructions of how we created our study by using Ikea flat pack furniture and a bit of imagination.

The wonderful world of the ‘Ikea Hack’
I love IkeaHackers.net!
I discovered the website last year when I started planning our extension and it has proved to be a wonderful resource. Whether I am looking for inspiration for my own room makeovers or whether I just want to see what can be done with some Ikea flat pack furniture and a bit of imagination the IkeaHackers website is packed full of fantastic ideas.
IkeaHackers.net is a site about modifications on and repurposing of Ikea products. Hacks, as we call it here, may be as simple as adding an embellishment, some others may require power tools and lots of ingenuity.
‘Jules’ (pseudonym – named after the ‘Jules’ Ikea chair) explains that the IkeaHackers website came into being in May 2006 when she did a search on IKEA hacks and saw that there were so many amazing ideas floating around the internet. She thought it would be a great idea to bring all of the ideas together under one roof and the IkeaHackers website was born. The site has grown enormously since then and is packed full of contributions from IKEA hackers all over the globe. Hackers submit their creations to Jules for publication on the site, with photographs and step-by-step instructions of how they did it.
Jules hopes the hacks and ideas will inspire readers and offer them an alternative to the products they will find in the IKEA catalogue.
As well as IKEA Hacks, the website is packed with lots of other helpful tips and useful information such as the ‘Hackers Help‘ section and Jules’ blog. You can also register for a free 20 Best Ikea Hacks eBook.
