My Ickle Ikea Hack
Another little hack for you – it took me that long to tidy the other side of the room!
I happened to be looking for a display sideboard for a spot in the back room. I was searching on lovely sites like Swoon Editions and found some beautiful pieces which I do still dream of. However budget wise I need to behave. No spending!
I was about to throw out an old IKEA Expedit unit (which seems to have had a name change to Kallax) from one of the boys bedrooms as had no room for it and Kindles rule in our house as they do not take up any precious space! The unit was vertical in the boys room hidden amongst a chaos of teddies, books and various bits of rubbish that had been shoved in it over the last couple of years. As we carried it down the stairs on its side I had a littlelightbulb moment. PING! We just happened to have some fantastic industrial looking wheels hanging about in the shed but you can grab these at most DIY stores or online at Screwfix.
Bish Bash Bosh and Bob is very much your uncle. I change it about a lot, styling it with different objects but for the moment I am liking a bit of copper. It may not quite be the Ercol inspired mango wood unit I had in mind but it does the job and works well in the room so for now it is happy days.
