41 Borderline Genius 😁 Ikea Hacks Anyone Can do πŸ‘πŸΌ ...

When I started looking at Ikea hacks I was a little disappointed. I wanted to share with you some fabulous ideas of how to use Ikea products πŸ’‘πŸšͺ . What I found were thousands of ideas for transforming Ikea products and some major DIY projects 🏘🏑. As you and I both know, dear readers, simply redecorating something is not a hack. Here is the result of my efforts in finding some great Ikea hacks πŸ–ΌπŸ›πŸ˜
