25 Practical IKEA Desk Hacks That Inspire
A desk is a must for almost every home: most of us have if not a home office, then at least a home office nook. If you are ready to DIY, IKEA is your way – this furniture can be easily hacked to match your space or you may even compose your own desk of various IKEA items you have at hand. Here are the coolest ideas we’ve found on the web – choose and go crafting!
IKEA Desk Hacks
What IKEA desks can you hack? Actually, any desks! Grab your Micke, Gruvan, Kallax desk and ahck it to match your interior. The easiest ways to do that is to paint or stain – if usual repainting isn’t for you, try color blocking, which is a hot trend. You may also paint or stain only a drawer or legs and keep the tabletop contrasting. Spray paint the legs with some metallic paint and you’ll get a cool and glam look. Cover a drawer or your tabletop with contact paper or spruce up the tabletop with gold leaf to make it shiny and bright.

Desks Of IKEA Items
If you don’t have a ready desk to renovate, make your own one using IKEA items you have. If you need much storage space, consider using dressers as legs – Tarva, Malm and other dressers or sideboards, and just place a tabletop on them. If you need a slim desk but with storage, an IKEA Alex Ekby shelf is your way to go – just place it on legs and voila! Prefer more lightweight designs? Buy hairpin or Lerberg trestle legs and add a Linnmon tabletop or take a tabletop from any IKEA Item – a coffee or a dining table you don’t need. Get inspired!
