The IKEA Furniture Hack Nate Berkus Used At His Montauk Tiny House
When interior designers Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent built a miniature house in the backyard of their Montauk beach house, they didn't have to sacrifice style or creativity.
The couple loves using IKEA as a starting point for stylish pieces, such as a wardrobe they revamped with leftover wallpaper from their townhouse and driftwood handles from Etsy.
The finished project looks like a beachy bohemian masterpiece that could retail for thousands of dollars at a high-end store. In reality, though, it costs a fraction of the price.
Berkus and Brent used the PAX/BERGSBO wardrobe, which retails for $720. Etsy handles range from $5 to $22, and peel-and-stick wallpaper costs about $69.
Recreating this project would cost about $850, vastly less expensive than comparable wardrobes, which can retail for as much
as $2,300.
