10 amazing IKEA transformations
At this point there is no one who doubts about the versatility, functionality, design and quality of the furniture of the popular Swedish multinational, even very stylish designs of furniture and objects exist that could go unnoticed in spaces of careful interior design.
Even so, there are always true enthusiasts of IKEA personalization, either for savings, whether for pleasure, those who like to teach us the many possibilities of change. From here we want to show you the 10 transformations that have surprised us the most:
1. TARVA chest of drawers
This simple untreated wooden chest of drawers becomes a sophisticated chest of drawers thanks to a lacquered hand paint and the replacement of the handles by some more colorful, elongated and gold-colored. The legs have also been sawed at an angle to give it a more retro aesthetic, so fashionable nowadays. These changes together with the final decoration, leave the dresser unrecognizable. We love!

2. OTTAVA lamp
Copper lighting is very fashionable nowadays, but who knows how long it will be. A reasonable idea if you have a limited budget but you like to follow the latest trends, is to paint this glass lamp in copper. A copper tone spray is the only thing you will need to make your lamp look super-resilient. Nobody would say it is not real copper!
3. BESTA structure
A wooden board attached to the top is the only thing that differentiates this floating console from its primitive appearance. A simple and easy change but that gives visual solidity and makes it more welcoming. As you choose the finish of the wood you can create one sensation or another in space. Choose yours!

4. IKEA PS cabinet
A classic that arrived in stores in the 90s and that can help you recreate an aesthetic of industrial inspiration in your spaces. To do this, choose different colors in muted tones (to preserve the industrial character) and paint the doors exclusively, leaving the fence in its original color. Never before has a change been so simple and spectacular!
5. RAST Chest
The transformation of this dresser into a bedside table that pretends to be made of metal plates fascinates us. A hand of dark bronze paint, a few handles of rustic style and a little workmanship for the cuts work the miracle. Overnight, a night table with history!
6. OFFENTLIG tray
As simple and cheap as it is colorful. A laminated cardboard tray becomes a modern side table without too much effort. We have run out of words!
7. LACK shelving
A meaningless hole in the wall can become a practical and charming little corner if you have a clear idea of how to make the most of it. Three shelf boards perfectly coupled and at different heights not only create a useful space, but also gives the feeling that this piece of furniture was always there.
8. GRUNDTAL mirror
You do not stop finding it again and again in the most popular decoration magazines and blogs, the Adnet round mirror with leather strip has become a "must" for those loyal fans of the latest trends. If you do not have the budget to get the iconic design, you can always try to make it yourself by recycling three leather belts and a simple round mirror.

9. MALM bed
This headboard becomes a blank canvas, and never better said, in which we can express our creativity. In this case, wooden strips with adhesive have been used to cover it, giving a warmer appearance to the whole set.
9. AVSKILD Cork Tablecloth
Can not find a cork board of the size you need? No problem! A few cork tablecloths will help you achieve your purpose. From this project we also love the divisions of the board in white plywood that are ideal for a perfect organization.
10. FROSTA stool
Additional storage space with stools. Yes, yes, you read well. A hypercreative solution of this shelf that will not leave your visitors indifferent. Fun but only suitable for very orderly people!
