Does it get any better than turning a bargain (or a dumpster delight) into a custom piece that perfectly meets your needs and fits your style at home? We don’t think so, and that’s why we love Ikea. Every single day Gwyneth and I are thankful that one of our neighbors thew out the Ikea Aneboda Dresser that would become our Dumpster Dive Dresser, and yesterday we got a double dosage of gratitude when Ikea selected our makeover as one of four finalists in their DIY contest!
To celebrate our excitement and the beauty of cheap & chic customization, we thought we’d share eight Ikea hacks that we just can’t get enough of. One day – when we have more square footage – we’re going to do each of these inspiring projects! (We bet a few of you want to add these to your list too. So if you’re pinning them onto your “Future Projects” board, please pin from the original sources in the links below. These ladies deserve the credit, don’t you think?!?)

PS: If you’d like to cast your vote in the Ikea DIY Contest, you see all four finalists here. Voting ends next Wednesday, November 21st! Gwyneth would like to mention that two winners will receive Ikea gift cards – gift cards that could buy a lot of those tasty meatballs.
