Ikea used to have a short two shelf cart that matched the helmer drawers. I bought a red cart and two sets of red drawers. I epoxied the drawer units together and then epoxied them onto the cart (without the wheels). The drawers hold all my screws and drill bits and my drills sit on the bottom shelf of the cart. I just move the unit with me where ever it is needed. Everything is right at hand. I just love it.


That sounds like the perfect place for your drills and accessories. Great idea!


Yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes!! Awesome list Katie!!


Thanks girl! You really can't go wrong when it comes to IKEA :)


I love ikea. I must have their stuff in nearly every room. Their bedroom furniture is especially good value.


YES!! IKEA is my go to store for so many things! The Kallax (Expedit) shelving and the Alex drawers are wonderful for organizing my scrapbook and sewing items. I also love their artificial plants and picture frames. I could go on and on! What's not to love about IKEA?!!


Great post! I agree with every one of these must have Ikea items. My all time favourite Ikea must have are the feather pillow inserts, they are so cheap!


Ikea is great especially when you can change it up to make it look more like one of a kind!

Great post! I had a trip planned to Ikea for tomorrow. With your great suggestions, it's sure to take me twice as long!


Wow, the Raskog cart only costs 29,99 USD? I saw a lot of ideas for it that I like and would love to try but the cart costs 65 EUR where I live which is about 72 USD! That's insane!


If you remember, I recently took a trip to IKEA (we are lucky to have two within a 45 minute drive!) to look at sofas and pick up a few items for the basement. Despite what you may think about IKEA'S quality, they have unbeatable prices on home decor staples that you won't want to miss. I'm always drawn to the same items when I visit the store and thought it might be helpful to share a few of my favorite must buy IKEA essentials.


IKEA is hands down my go to store for artificial plants. Not only are they super affordable, but they are well made and the most lifelike I've seen.

IKEA has an incredible selection of frames, perfect for creating inexpensive gallery walls. I've used both the RIBBA and VIRSERUM frames in gallery walls around my home.

In my opinion, feather pillows are a must! There's just no comparison between a feather pillow insert and poly filled insert. Trust me, it's worth the extra couple dollars to have the right pillows on your couch. On my latest trip I was shocked to see that they had 20x20 inserts for $5.99!!! Can you believe that? Of course I bought two for our new basement couch.

Along with inserts, IKEA also has a ton of pillow covers, most costing less than $10.00 My favorite is the LAPPLJJUNG RUTA that I've used in both our living room and mudroom.

Does the RASKOG CART even need an introduction? The organizing and storage possibilities are endless when it comes to this little versatile cart. I've been using mine for craft storage and it's been a dream having everything mobile and in one spot.

IKEA has some really fun fabrics that range from $4.99-$8.99 a yard. If you love bright colors and interesting designs than you'll love their fabric!

Along with a pillow addiction I also have a thing for throw blankets. Not only are they useful on chilly nights, but they are perfect for adding warmth, color and texture to a space. And if you have children like me then they are a must for building awesome forts in the family room :)

Storage boxes can be expensive and add up quick if you need more than a few. I've saved a ton of money by using many of IKEA's boxes, bins and crates to organize my home.

Most of the bins (with the exception of the white boxes above) received minor updates. I've created my own labels, added store bought labels or a bit of paint to give them a more unique and custom look.

IKEA has great prices on stylish rugs. My favorite is this one, which is very similar to the rug I have in our laundry room. They also carry lessor quality rugs that are perfect for sprucing up kids play areas or office spaces. I currently have a $20 polka dot IKEA rug in my office (see above) that's perfect for adding a bit of playfulness to the space.

You don’t need to rent a giant hulking carpet cleaner, unless you plan on doing the entire house. You just need your iron, according to Homemaker Chic.

You don’t need to rent a giant hulking carpet cleaner, unless you plan on doing the entire house. You just need your iron, according to Homemaker Chic.


You don’t need to rent a giant hulking carpet cleaner, unless you plan on doing the entire house. You just need your iron, according to Homemaker Chic.


1. Get stains out of your microfiber couch with rubbing alcohol.


551 East uses isopropyl alcohol, a white sponge, some elbow grease, and a white bristle brush to make her couch look like new. Just make sure, like she says, to get white tools so that the color dyes don’t transfer to your fabric.


2. Steam clean mystery stains out of your carpets using an iron.


You don’t need to rent a giant hulking carpet cleaner, unless you plan on doing the entire house. You just need your iron, according to Homemaker Chic.


3. If that doesn’t work, use vinegar and baking soda to get oil-based stains out of carpet.


Lizzy Writes shares her technique, which uses baking soda or cornstarch, vinegar, clear dish soap, and some cold water.


4. For when those party guests messed up your furniture, use your hair dryer.


Homemade Mamas swears by it.


5. Dust off your fan blades with a pillowcase.


That way, you’re not just wiping the dust off into the air. Read more at Real Simple.


5. Clean out your air by vacuuming your AC unit.


Well, it’s not that simple. But Family Handy Man has detailed instructions for cleaning your AC.


6. When a duster won’t get all the grime off of your blinds, use some vinegar.


From Keep Home Simple.


7. Spend some quality time cleaning out your kitchen sink with baking soda, vinegar, rock salt, ice cubes, and lemons.


Today says that kitchen sinks are dirtier than most bathrooms (most). Apartment Therapy has a step-by-step process to completely sanitize and beautify your stainless steel sink.


8. Use Resolve to clean your grout.


Claire over at It’s the Little Moments discovered (via her husband) that Resolve completely lifts up the old grime.


9. Fight oily dust with…more oil.


One Good Thing By Jillee demonstrates how a little vegetable or mineral oil will help wipe up that sticky dust that finds its way into your kitchen. Once you get it off, though, you might want to use a little dish soap and a cleaning sponge to clean up your, um, cleaning oil.


*Note: I actually tried this while writing this post. Worked so well.


10. Scrub out your greasy oven with baking soda, dishwashing liquid, and vinegar.


Have you noticed how gross your oven is lately? If you don’t have a self-cleaning function (or just hate the smell it makes), you can clean it out yourself with these instructions from Cleverly Inspired.


11. Hate scrubbing? Use ammonia on your stove grates.


On The V Spot.


12. After you get all of the grossness off, wax your stovetop.


This tip from Real Simple should only be used with gas stovetops, or non-glass-top electric stovetops.


13. Get grease out of your stove filter vents with a toothbrush and Greased Lightning.


Greased Lightning is a degreaser you can get at most hardware stores. Tip courtesy of The Manly Housekeeper.


14. Show your small appliances some love with Cream of Tartar.


Magical. From A Real Life Housewife, who also says A Bar Keeper’s Friend works, as well.


15. Your dishwasher needs half a cup of CLR cleaner to function as new again.


The Quick and the Hungry goes through how to completely clean out that thing.


16. De-scale your faucets with the help of some paper towels and vinegar.


The Thrifty home uses vinegar on faucets and water trays.


17. Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide will clean off that glass cooktop.


The Daily Mom has both a video and a post showing you how to get that cooked on gunk off of your pretty cooktop.


18. Because your friend decided to microwave spaghetti without a cover.


Get it out with a bowl of 1 cup of water and 1 tablespoon of vinegar. Microwave for five minutes, then wipe down with a paper towel or sponge. Tip from Practically Functional.


19. Run vinegar and water through your coffee maker.


It’ll get out coffee buildup and water stains — detailed instructions over at WikiHow.


20. Freshen and deodorize your mattress with baking soda.


Assuming you don’t have any stains in it, using some baking soda and lavender essential oil will freshen it right up, says Make it Do.


21. For tough odors like urine, use Resolve.


It’s tougher than lavender. Instructions over at eHow.


22. Don’t forget to wash those dead skin cells out of your pillows.


Clean My Space shows you how and when to wash your pillows in the washing machine, depending on what kind of pillows you own.


23. Take your vent covers outside and hose them down.


When cleaning out your filters, don’t forget that these things gather up dust, too. This friendly reminder’s over on D and R Tabb.


24. Wax your vents with car wax to keep the dust off all year.


From Ask Anna Moseley.


25. Use a cream cleanser like ROG1 followed by ROG3 to get the gross stuff out of your tub and shower.


Retro Rennovation found two different cleaners that work without multiple applications.


26. Use bleach and CelluCotton to get mold out of your tub caulk.


This Blessed Life uses cotton beauty coils to make sure the bleach has time to soak into the caulk.


27. To get that weird mold that grows under the rim of your toilet, use vinegar and duct tape.


Funny all of the places that things grow. Get more details at Homespot.


28. Use a tub scrub made from peppermint oil, baking soda, and liquid soap to make your bath smell great.


If that’s what you’re going for — the recipe’s on Martha Stewart.


29. Clean out a top loading washing machine with vinegar, baking soda, and an old toothbrush.


Apartment Therapy shows you how.


30. Get the lint out of your dryer exhaust tube with a vacuum cleaner and prevent potential fire hazards.


Be sure to read ALL OF the details over at Pretty Handy Girl — you’ll want to follow the directions exactly.


31. Top it all off by simmering a stock pot of rosemary, lemon, and vanilla extract as long as you need to make your home smell amazing.


It just smells so good! On One More Moore.

Wood Tilt-Out Trash Cabinet

Wood Tilt-Out Trash Cabinet


Wood Tilt-Out Trash Cabinet


i had something like this 20 yrs ago. mine had top that lifted up and had double doors in front. i love yours better. we used them in bathroom for dirty clothes and kitchen for trash, but one dog learned to take nose and lift lid. they sold in


The best part is they pretty much dog proof. I have had one for 10 years and my two pit bulls have never been able to get at the garbage.


Great job.


Can you tell me more about the picture above your trash can. Is it one of your diy projects. I have a similar mirror that I would like to use in a diy project. Did you use chalk paint to paint it.


My grandfather made one similar to this for the bathroom, to hold dirty clothes.


Until a few weeks ago, we had a nice stainless steel trash can. Nice…but still a bit of an eyesore being a trashcan and all. Then one day, I went to step on the pedal to raise the lid and the pedal broke right off. So we began looking a new trashcans and I just wasn’t loving anything I saw. Plus, the nice ones can be surprisingly pricey. Then, I saw a friend of mine ask for recommendations for where to buy a wood trash can cabinet on Facebook and it was totally one of those “Why didn’t I think of that?!” moments!


I’m so happy with how it turned out and we no longer have an unsightly trash can in the kitchen!


This is how it looked before. Not so pretty right? So we got to work! My husband did the building and I did the \"prettying\" it up.


I LOVE the weathered grey stain I used on it! It reminds me of old barn wood.


To see the plans we used and how we modified them check out the full post in the link below!

Wood and Metal IKEA Hack Industrial Shelf

Wood and Metal IKEA Hack Industrial Shelf


Wood and Metal IKEA Hack Industrial Shelf


I’m so happy to be kicking off the Ikea Hack to the Max week. Can’t wait to see all the other great hacks!


Thanks for sharing, Suzy!


Love it. and Doing it this weekend! Thank you for sharing on Pinterest Cass!


What stain and spray paint did you use?


I used Rust-oleum Painter’s Touch flat black spray paint. I did some experimenting with the stain – there are a few layers. I started with provincial (Varathane), then a layer of white/pickling stain (minwax), and lastly Jacobean (minwax). You could probably just skip the first two and go straight to Jacobean and it would look really nice.


Awesome hack! I’m so inspired Did you have to sand down the metal before spray painting it or do any sort of prep prior to spray painting?


Hi Cassie,


Nope, I didn’t do anything to prep the metal before painting.


What do you mean your “ripped” the boards to the correct depth?


A rip cut is when you make a cut to a board parallel to the grain of the wood. My boards were 1x12s. The metal shelves were a little over 10\u2033 deep, so I had to cut down the boards to fit that depth.


Kicking off our IKEA to the Max week, we’ve got Suzy from Real Happy Space here to share her brilliantly easy IKEA hack industrial shelf — for the perfect blend of modern and rustic, metal and wood! We set our guests up with some Q&A’s to make it easy to get to know them and their projects — be sure to go visit Suzy, too, because you’ll love her projects! See all the IKEA to the Max posts here (and all our previous IKEA posts here), and be sure to subscribe by RSS or email to get updates for every post.


Tell us about you and your site. What’s your favorite part of DIYing, and what are some of your favorite projects?


Hey fellow Remodelaholic readers! I’m very excited to be here sharing my Ikea hack with you guys today.


I started my blog, Real Happy Space, to share my diy home and decor projects (and spare my husband from listening to me yammer on about my latest idea). I love upcycling items, recycling scraps and tweaking something store-bought to make it uniquely perfect for our home. Two of my favorite projects so far are this penny starburst mirror and this wooden bench I pulled off the curb and transformed.


Which IKEA piece(s) did you hack? and why did you choose that (over another product, or building from scratch, etc)?


We have a small corner in our dining room that needed a furniture piece to provide some nice storage and display, but we also wanted to keep a few items out of reach from our mischievous toddler. The room already had a wood dining table and wood dresser, so I wanted a touch of metal to contrast those heavy wood pieces. In a nutshell, we were in need of a budget-friendly storage solution for a small space, so Ikea was a natural choice.


I’m not ashamed to admit that I always look at the least expensive options first and then work my way up. When I came across the Hyllis shelving unit I knew I had found “the one.” It was the perfect size for my space and you can’t beat that $15 price tag. Yes, at first glance it didn’t look like something I wanted in my dining room, but that’s where the hacking part comes in.


What did you do?


To dress up this basic shelving unit for my dining room, I first gave it a couple coats of matte black spray paint. It took two cans to cover the whole thing.


I wanted to make the shelves look a little more substantial, so I added wood planks to the shelves. I first cut 1” x 12” boards to the correct length (23 9/16\u2033 for the bottom three shelves and 23 10/16\u2033 for the top shelf). Next I ripped the boards to the correct depth (10 5/8\u2033 for the bottom three and 10 13/16\u2033 for the top shelf). After the stain and poly was dry it was time to add them to the shelving unit.


With the metal shelves completely assembled, I loosened the screws slightly for the bottom three shelves, then simply set the shelves in place and tighten the screws back up. This kept the wood snug in place.


To attach the top shelf, I aligned the wood on top of the metal shelf and used clamps to secure it, I then unscrewed the metal shelf, flipped it upside down and placed it on my work surface. I used a drill to make four holes in the metal and wood, I then used screws to secure the wood to the metal. Lastly, I camouflaged the screws with a touch of spray paint.


Would you do it again? Why or why not? and if yes, what would you do differently next time?


There are so many ways you could customize this piece by using different paint or stain colors. I love that it’s so inexpensive, so you’re not risking much. Why not go out on a limb and try something totally different?


Suzy, thanks so much for sharing with us!

Whitewashed Wood Wallpaper Accent Wall

Whitewashed Wood Wallpaper Accent Wall


Whitewashed Wood Wallpaper Accent Wall


It’s looking amazing!!! no doubt you have awesome choice…


way to make lemonade out of lemons…it’s georgous!!


“Mistakes are inevitable, what separates a person from others is the improvement made after a mistake is realized. ” – Unknown Your “mistake” was pure genius – the wall would not have looked as good without the vertical trim.


It’s gorgeous! I can’t believe how real it looks. I’m looking forward to seeing the end results!


It’s week 4 of the One Room Challenge! I took last week off as I got caught up on other projects but I’m back and I’m revealing a huge part of the room! I love feature walls that are full of texture and character. I’ve installed a few real wood accent walls in both of our homes, a shiplap wall in my daughter’s old room and a Stikwood Wall in our current home office. And then I came across this amazing Faux White Washed Wood Wallpaper and instantly fell in love. It was actually the first piece I found for the nursery and I based the whole design off of it. Even before we knew we were having a boy or girl!


At first I thought to myself, wallpaper? Am I reallllly going to install wallpaper in our home? After scrapping wallpaper off in our first home, I swore I’d never ever install it. But here I am, installing wallpaper…. I guess trends do make a full 180 sometimes! But you know what, it was totally worth it because I am so in love with how it turned out. Doesn’t it look so real?


But like all projects, the final look wasn’t actually my original plan. The white wood accent panels were not planned. But that’s the funny thing about design, sometimes your mistakes turn into something better in the end. You see, I learned yet another lesson in measuring before you buy something… I’ll touch on that in a sec.


And above the bed, I hung vintage fly fishing patent prints in weathered wood frames. I like to keep my ‘themes’ pretty subtle in my kid’s rooms, so you will find the fishing theme is really worked into the design. I’m still working on perfecting it.


Next up is lighting! I have sconces going up on both white panels and a new chandelier!


For those of you intrigued by the Wood Wallpaper, I’m going to take you through a quick process of how I put it up.


First I cleared the wall and took off the outlet plates.


The wall mural comes in 8 large pieces and includes the paste and everything you need. The instructions were great! You start by marking the middle of your wall by drawing a horizontal and vertical line and then place the first panel in the center corner. All the pieces are marked with numbers so the pattern aligns.


Now this is where I messed up. When I purchased the wallpaper I didn’t measure my wall to make sure one kit would be enough. SO when I laid out all the panels I discovered that I was going to be 14\u2033 short on either side. Eeek! So after some “make it work” brainstorming, I decided to place the gaps on either side of the crib and install molding. In the end, I love the new look better than the solid wall anyway!


The pattern aligned perfectly and it wasn’t hard to put up at all. I think the whole thing took me just a few hours. To finish off the wall I installed 12\u2033 white boards and then added molding on either side for a little detail.


I can’t wait to finish the whole room!
