It's our first IKEA Hack round up of the year and could be one of our favorites thus far.  10 hacks and ideas to update your spaces for the new year imagined by IKEA stylists!  Check them out below!


1. Spring Pink Powder Trend + FROSTA Stool
The FROSTA stool gets a pink makeover with this spring's hot colour. See more here. (By Pella Hedeby, Livet Hemma-redaktionen)

2.  Hand Woven Chair Back
Love this idea of weaving a piece to the back of an IVAR chair. Click here to see more. Update - click here for the instructions!

3. DIY - Build TV Bench + Cupboards
We love this low version of a fauxdenza, based on the floor and covered with cement tiles.  See more info at Livet Hemma. (By Pella Hedeby, Livet Hemma-redaktionen)

4.  Bedroom Lighting DIY
Make a DIY bedroom with smart LED light strip diodes.  The stylists painted pallets in white and attached LED light strips just below the rim. The homemade bed frame light up in the dark and creates an airy feeling in the bedroom. Cool.  Click here to see more.

5. FROSTA Stools DIY + Table Nook
We love what the Ikea stylists did with this little dining nook, painting a couple of FROSTA stools in different shades of blue, the NORBO leaf table and VALJE wall cabinet.  Click here to see more. (Anna Lenskog Belfrage, Livet Hemma redaktionen)

6.  Bedside Table Planter
A fun bedside table idea using the drawer as a planter.  Click here for more info.

7.  Storage DIY
A row of magazine files are secured on a wall and we like the piece of wood (for decoration) with an attached rail and knobs for bits and bobs. Click here to see more. (Photographer: Sandra Werud, Interior designer: Therese Ericsson).

8.  Cohesive Shelving
We love these shelves painted the same colour as the wall. It adds a spacious, cohesive feeling. Click here for more info. (Photographer: Sandra Werud, Interior designer: Therese Ericsson).

9.  Suitcases as Storage
This isn't a new idea, but the way they've styled this - it's just so pretty!  See more storage ideas here.

10.  Patina Finished Planters 
New terracotta planters are given a patina look using model plaster and sand paper.  Click here for more info.
