Property Brothers-Inspired IKEA Hacks That Will Elevate Your Home
Sleek Dresser
Cut wood trim at a 45-degree angle to create a frame around a MALM dresser's drawers, and do the same with an MDF board to frame the sides, attaching with wood glue.
Once all the framing is attached, paint the piece and add the handles. It will brighten any space, looking modern and fresh — the exact style the Scott brothers adore.
Statement Sideboard
Assemble two IVAR cupboards, then cut eight quarter-circle pieces out of an MDF board that equal the length of one of the cabinet doors.
Attach the pieces to each cabinet's top and bottom face, then prime and paint it a neutral shade. You can swap out the quarter-circles for triangles or any other shape you like.
Decorative Console
Use the BESTÅ unit and TIMMERVIKEN doors as a sideboard or TV stand. Cut half-ovals in the doors with a jigsaw power tool and fill them with cane webbing.
Soak the cane sheets for 30 minutes, then cut the cane to fit the door and staple it from the inside. Dry it and attach the doors to the BESTÅ unit.
High-End Table Lamp
Cover a SIMRISHAMN’s base with marble contact paper, making a slit for the wire to go through. Cut off excess paper and spray paint the silver hardware.
A gold or brass shade will pair best with a warm-toned marble look, while black or the original silver may match cool-toned marble contact paper better. Finish by adding the bulbs.
Modern Coffee Table
You'll need a 48-inch concrete form tube for this LACK coffee table makeover. Cut the tube into three 16-inch pieces for the new table legs.
Sand down the table, then cover it and the legs with the cement. Once dry, sand it down again, glue the legs to the table, and spray the whole piece with the water sealant.
