30 People Modified Items Bought In IKEA And Ended Up With Brilliant Results

Published 2 years ago

Need a new mattress? Ikea. Want a scented candle? Ikea. Craving Swedish meatballs with lingonberry jam? Did I already mention Ikea..? Want to play hide and seek? You guessed it right, Ikea. Actually, no, that would be breaking the rules. It turns out that Ikea officially banned hide-and-seek in 2015. Was it truly necessary? Seriously?

Despite not being able to play hide-and-seek there, we still love Ikea for its affordable prices and easy-to-assemble furniture. Ikea even has a fanbase where the craftsmen of Reddit take the goods sold in IKEA and reinvent them by giving the items a new purpose. The community is called “Ikea Hacks,” and it’s “focused on helping people build the perfect furniture for their living space using items sold by IKEA.”

Scroll below to see the most brilliant ideas people came up with. Would you buy any of these if they were actually sold in Ikea? Let us know!
