Hackeas: Get organised in no time

One specially for the ladies. Not really hacks but some nice repurposing of Ikea items to help you bust clutter and get your stuff in order.

Magnetic make up brush organiser
ParisB stores her make up brushes with the Spontan magnetic board and containers.

See more of ParisB’s make up brush holder.

Magnetic jewelry hanger
Here’s another one with the Spontan magnetic board. Monica wrapped the board in wrapping paper and stuck the magnets on it. The necklaces are hung round the magnets.

Bathroom organiser
Geneviève used the Kroken accessories, made for kitchen storage, in her bathroom:
- rails for towels and to hold other Kroken accessories
- spice rack for perfume, etc
- shelf for makeup
- cutlery stands for toothbrush, hair brushes
- s-hooks for necklaces
- clips for earrings


She also used a Bjüron plant pot for her nail polish and stuff, and took the galvanised bottom tray as a make-up tray, and Beta plant pots for pencils, mascara, etc. Her favorite is the Kroken paper towel holder which she uses as a toilet paper holder. It holds 3 rolls and it makes all her guests smile.

Gruntal pot hanger and rack
Rene’ made her own pot rack out of the Grundtal shelving, hooks and dish drainer. She says, “We couldn’t afford a proper pot rack, nor accommodate one, due to the height of the cathedral ceiling in the kitchen.” The shelving is mounted to the wall on boards that were left by the previous owner. “We love it, plus it freed up 2 whole kitchen cabinets.”
