4 Genius Ikea Hacks for Kids

Despite the crowded parking lot, despite the long lines, despite the “out of stock” signs, or the frustrating instructions that can have you mystified, I love Ikea. Yes, I’ll say it again…I love Ikea. I love it not only for its forward-thinking design or its low prices, but also because many of its pieces are seriously blank canvases. The customization (popularly known as Ikea Hacking) opportunities are endless. Here are 4 of my favorites for kids’ rooms and toys.

I’m seriously over-the-moon impressed with this yarn-wrapped kids’ chair by One More Mushroom. It looks like something I would spend hundreds of dollars for on Etsy, but the Latt table and chairs is only $19.99.

I’m obsessed with this dollhouse made from the Expedit bookshelf, found on Woonideeen. The mix of patterns is so stylish, and I’m sure there is an easy way to make this a 3- or 4-story house!

Dressers are a great thing to buy at Ikea. They are sturdy, they function very well, and they offer many opportunities for personalization. This adorable example by Pinja Colada is made with circular stickers on the very simple Malm dresser.

My jaw literally dropped when I saw this incredible hack. This push bike was made from 2 Frosta stools. You can find the directions at Instructables.
