Confession: I love Ikea. Love the catalog, love the meatballs, love Ikea. It’s not the last word in design, but there’s definitely a place for it. I have really strong feelings about good design being affordable and available for the masses and Ikea is certainly a leader in that arena. My apartment (and budget!) are truly grateful.

I also love ikea hacker. A crafty/home improvement blog that has been around since May of 2006, ikea hacker began when the author, Jules, did a Google search for ikea hacks, found a ton and thought about how great it would be to have them all in one place. The blog is made up of reader submitted projects and instructables featuring Ikea pieces that have been modified. There’s also an ongoing forum with Ikea hack information from users all over the world.

What are my favorite Ikea hacks? Funny you should ask…
