Its been a while since I last did a round up of my favourite IKEA hacks on Instagram. And since then, the number of IKEA hacks on IG has grown leaps and bounds.

When I did a search, I found over 280,000 posts on #ikeahacks!

So, before the year ends, lets dive in and check out some of the best IKEA hacks on Instagram.

20 best IKEA hacks on Instagram

#1 MALM reading nook

A cosy reading nook from 2 MALM dressers (though the caption mentions HEMNES), framed. It even has space behind the cabinets for storage.

Two #ikeahacks in one photo The reading nook and a bookshelf. The bench was made using two ikea dressers. We framed them for a built in look and pained them the same color as the wall. They werent quite deep enough so we added a storage compartment in the back perfect for storing extra blankets and pillows. The bookshelf is made from 4 ikea book ledges and dowels. A favorite spot for both reading and play. Hope youre having a good Monday . . . #ikeahack #ikeahackers #ikeahacksforkids #diykids #julinspo #readingnook #windowseat #barnrumsinspo #barnrumsinspiration #kidsroom #kidsroomdecor #vintagekids #kidsroomideas #kidsroominspo #barnrumsinspo #barnrumsinredning #barnrum #timmervgg #vintagedecor #vintagekidsroom #vintagekidsrooms

#2 KALLAX kitchen island

A lovely farmhouse style kitchen island using the KALLAX shelving unit as the starting point.

Watch the build process video here:

#3 Breakfast bar with the FINNVARD trestle

Want a breakfast counter? This is probably the easiest way to set one up. A FINNVARD trestle and butcher block anchored to the wall. And thats it!

Und die Tischplatte gibt es auch bei Ikea in der Kchenabteilung, es ist nmlich eine Arbeitsplatte.. die gleiche die wir auch in unserer Kche haben damit das alles zusammen passt super easy und teuer war das ganze auch nicht ich wnsche allen einen schnen Montag // duo ludzi si pytao skd nasz st w jadalni, a wic jest z @ikeapolska nog idzie kupi oddzielnie a pyt znajdziecie w kuchniach.. poniewa jest do blat kuchenny, taki sam ktry my mamy w kuchni eby st pasowa do naszej kuchni. za nie duo pienidzy a i tak si prezentuje ycz miego poniedziaku #kitchen #kitchendesign #kitcheninspiration #kuchnia #kuchnie #ikeakitchen #ikea #ikeahacks #ikeaideas #farmhouse #farmhousestyle #farmhousedecor #farmhousekitchen #landhaus #landhausstil #landhauskche #esszimmer #esszimmerideen #interior #interiorinspo #homeinspiration #homeinspo #decoration #decorinspo #whiteinterior #whiteliving #whitedecor #vanlife #scandinavianhome

#4 Sewing room cutting table

Inspired by this sewing table hack, Johanna made her own version from 3 KALLAX units. The table provides lots of storage and a large surface for cutting. Perfect!

Watch her cutting table video below. Sewing room tour video here.

#5 The blue yoga mat bag

The FRAKTA trimmed to fit a rolled up yoga mat and protect it from the rain.


Always love a good IKEA-LEGO hack. This LEGO station is made from 2 TROFAST units back to back.

WERBUNG|| DIY-Legotisch Hey ihr Lieben Wie versprochen zeige ich euch noch das Geschenk von uns fr den groen Schlawiner zum 3. Geburtstag Da die letzten Monate das Bro vom Papa voll mit seinem alten Lego war und der Schlawiner nix anderes mehr spielen wollte, baute ich aus zwei Trofast Regalen einen Legotisch und damit er nicht durchgehend so viel Platz im #kinderzimmer einnimmt, habe ich ein paar Rollen drunter gebaut, Scharniere an den Regalen befestigt und ein Schliemechanismus nun kann man den Tisch aufklappen und ganz an die Wand fahren nicht nur ich bin begeistert denn Papa und der groe Schlawiner sind nicht mehr aus dem Zimmer zu bekommen kurz vor knapp wurde ich noch von einer guten Freundin angefixt denn sie fhrte mich zu @limmaland und deren passenden Lego-Sortier-Sticker mein innerlicher Monk ist sowas von befriedigt #endlichordnung Wie gefllt euch der #legotisch? Habt ihr auch frher gerne mit #lego gespielt? Wenn euch die Idee gefllt, dann freue ich mich ber einem Herzchen, einem Kommentar und das Abspeichern/Teilen nicht vergessen vielen lieben Dank #birthday #partyplanner #kidsbirthday #kindergeburtstag #party #mamablogger #mamablogger_de #diy #surprise #mottoparty #boy #meingroer #stolz #vorfreude #partydecoration #birthdaydesign #kidspartyideas #happybirthday #ikeahacks #3geburtstag #schnellundeinfach #spieltisch #present #geschenkideen #diebestenideenfuerkinder

#7 Vintage style TARVA

A row of TARVA 3-drawer dressers given the faux drawer treatment. Classic.

#8 HOVET industrial mirror

Industrial mirrors have pretty much exploded on my Instagram feed. Most are pretty expensive. Make one from the large HOVET mirror and save some $$.

#9 Dog bowls using the IVAR

Isnt this cute? Food and water bowls for your dog using short IVAR posts and a shelf. Cut holes in the shelf to fit your dog bowls.

#10 Hot air balloon with REGOLIT

Add a little whimsy to your kids room. A REGOLIT lamp shade, small basket and stick on dots completes this hot air balloon.

#11 A classy mirror cube

This looks a million bucks but its cheaper than you think. Youll need 2 packs of IKEA LOTS mirrors, 24 angle brackets, masking tape and an adhesive that fixes to both glass and metal. Join the mirrors together, et voil!

#12 KURA playhouse

A lovely KURA playhouse. Click the arrows to see how happy she is to call this her big girl bed.

#13 Cigar Box Guitar

When I see absolutely far out hacks like this, it gets me very excited. It also reminds me of this one. I hope the BRONSSOPP guitar sounds good.

#14 Toy box crate with seat

What an idea! A toy box with storage and seating. So useful, and I dont mean just for kids. I can think of a number of ways I can use this handy storage crate ottoman at home.

#15 Mobile phone loop

No instructions found. But it seems pretty straightforward. Snip the handle off the FRAKTA blue bag and glue the ends to inside of a phone case. Done!

#16 Release the KROKEN

If plain clear glass is boring, jazz up the KROKEN with art. These personalised water bottles make great gifts too.

#17 FROSTA chair

So simple but make a difference. Just take one more FROSTA seat and leg and attach the short curved section under the seat. Sadly, the FROSTA seems to be discontinued, which is a major bummer. It is definitely Number 1 on my IKEA, Please Bring Back List.

#18 LEGO brick cabinet

These LEGO brick cabinets are adorable. Cilla made them from EKET cubes and round discs. Catch her Stories at @designbycilla for the tutorial.

#19 Prehistoric DUKTIG

This Jurassic theme DUKTIG play kitchen is so rawrsome. Be sure to check out the entire room @sweet_home_of_mine. And this post for more DUKTIG hack inspo.

#20 Rustic coffee table

Probably the simplest hack ever. The SNIDAD basket (handles removed) topped with a round wood table and there you have it! A coffee table for your patio.

IKEA HACK -SWIPE ACROSS for more photos!! One of the hardest things to find in most stores is a natural coffee table. So again I got to thinking and looked around my house for some inspo!! I really do have way too many baskets and thought about a past hack of mine where I turned a laundry hamper upside down to make a side table. So I turned the Ikea Basket I had upside down but the handles were in the way! I loved the look of it and it was a decent size for a small coffee table so off went the handles! Also sitting in the storage room was the $19 @kmartaus oak look Side Table which I hadnt used yet! The round top matched the colouring of the basket beautifully so I popped it on top!! Shazam- Instant Coffee Table and I needed something to go with my @kmartaus Timber Chairs- perfect!! So if you have the @kmartaus timber chairs and you want a little table to match heres one for you!! #ikea #ikeahack #hacks #decorhacks #homehacks #homedecor #home #bargain #bargainshopper #bargainhunter #decorate #diy #diycoffeetable #natural #kmartaus #kmarthack #kmarthacks #homestyle #homeinspo #lookwhat_i_found
