(Podéis leer este artículo en Español aquí. ♦ Podem ler este artigo em Português aqui.)

Do you remember what I first did with my plain Ikea Lack side tables? Here, take a look! Well, I got bored of them, besides, they didn’t match anymore with the living room decoration. So, I undid what I had and transform them again! This time I used Ikea wall paper, a stapler, a pair of scissors and some washi tape. Now, I just have to add some wall decoration and some curtains and my living room will be complete! YAY!

Finally I have my own home office! Well… I’m assembling it, bit by bit! So far I already have put some furniture and hanged some pictures. And I recently made this super easy to make and very functional notes board! I had some extra IKEA NYTTJA frames and I didn’t quite know what to do with them, so, wandering through Pinterest in search for some inspiration, I came up with this! I love it! The four words I used to motivate myself were: INVENT, DO, TRANSFORM, CREATE.

Do you use any notes board? How do you keep all those important notes and inspirational images?

Before & After: LACK table from Ikea

Here’s my first Ikea hack!

I love the simplicity of Ikea, but sometimes it’s so simple that it turns out to be really impersonal. So, this time I’ve decided to give a “me” touch to these LACK coffee tables. What do you think? I just needed a brush, some white glue and approximately 5 meters of two types of ribbons.
