Hello – this is my first (intentional) IKEA-hack!
My husband and I just moved to Cape Cod and I wanted to make our furniture more Cape Cod looking. Your website inspired me to get crafty!
I took my old Ikea BISSA shoe cabinet and some Pine Craft Board ($1.73 from Lowes) Loctite Power Grab glue ($4.59) Blue Chalk Paint and a Brown wax. I just looked up videos on YouTube on how to use it. I had a few pieces of Ikea furniture that didn’t survive the move … so I applied this same combination to other pieces of furniture.
Here is a BORGSJO shelf… it wasn’t the same after being disassembled then re-assembled for the move. So I bought some plywood and pine craft board to make barn looking doors. (it’s blocking a unusable doorway in this picture)
I love this site! Great ideas from creative people – it helped me get inspired.
