Having been stuck inside for about 4 of the last 7 days due to various driving/parking bans here in Boston (thank you blizzard Juno, part 1 & 2), I’ve been thinking of ways to update a few pieces in my apt, while on a budget. I often times steer away from DIY, especially on furniture, because I think it’s too easy to accidentally have the pieces look cheap or homemade. That being said, I have come across some fabulous before & afters.
These below IKEA hacks are truly amazing- they look like such high end, quality, trendy pieces- they’re perfect for those of you looking for an inexpensive piece, or (like me) living in an apartment/small space.
(Before –> After)
2. This fabulous coffee table makeover by the Hunted Interior has been on my radar for quite some time- the gold, the marble, the table styling- it’s all perfection!
3. Another fantastic- although more time consuming- project is this dresser by Smitten Studio. They did a great job taking a plain, wooden dresser and transforming it into a simple, modern piece. Perfect for a guest bedroom!
4. This one by Style Me Pretty is similar to the coffee table, but is a simple, easy way to spruce up a boring side table.
5. Those of you looking for an inexpensive bar cart, here’s a great option. Love the light blue color as well!
Which should is your favorite?!
