Published on February 4th, 2009 | by Jules Yap


We have a winner!

Thank you all 3144 of you who voted for your favourite Ikea hack of 2008. The poll is closed and we have a winner! Pinot and Dita’s fabric wall art is your favourite hack of the year, garnering over 20% of the votes, with Steffen’s coffee table train a close contender at 14% of votes.

I am also very, very happy that for the first time since I started Ikeahacker in 2006, I am able to give a gift to the well-deserving hacker of the year. Thanks to Geoff from Grippiks.com, who runs an online store specialising in decorative accents for Ikea furniture. Woohoo!

Congrats Pinot and Dita! You guys win up to $100 worth of your choice of accents from the Grippiks store. Happy shopping and we hope to see more hacks from you.

    We need to have IP checking for voting next year. You could vote an unlimited number of times from one computer for this poll.

    I think you need to redo this competition and only have true ‘hacks’ allowed to be judged.

    The winner did nothing more then what Ikea already offers: SLÄTTHULT
    decoration stickers.

    I loved that art project, but I totally agree, it’s not a hack.

    But congrats to the winner! That project was great.

    I concur. The winner isn’t a hack, it’s a pretty craft project.
