Are You an IKEA Hacker?

Ikea Hacker LogoWe’re all familiar with the myriad of inexpensive home furnishing products IKEA has to offer. From tiny accessories to entire kitchens, the company provides a massive array of Swedish named products to fit almost every conceivable purpose.

For some, though, IKEA’s products are building blocks for bigger ideas. In fact, there’s an entire community organized around the creative pursuit of repurposing or combining IKEA products in new and creative ways. They call themselves “IKEA Hackers” and they congregate around an online community to share their ideas.

From the website:

“ is a site about modifications on and repurposing of Ikea products. Hacks, as we call it here, may be as simple as adding an embellishment, some others may require power tools and lots of ingenuity.”

From sneaky tool cabinets to a hideaway mirror dining table, each project includes the IKEA products you’ll need as well as instructions for making it a reality.

Get inspired, have a good laugh, or maybe even become an IKEA hacker yourself:
