Think warm brown tones, beautiful dark wood and pretty Christmas decorations as well as some clever room makeovers, vintage up cycling and amazing IKEA hacks – all of which have helped to transform the house into a home.
The cabinet is a clever IKEA Hack. Elin picked up the Pax cupboard on Facebook marketplace and added the wood corner pieces before painting all the wood in the same tone. A simple twist which makes all the difference! Plus, it was no doubt a bargain to buy!
I love the pink paper Christmas flower too!
There’s nothing like a roaring fire in wintertime, right?
Beside the fire is yet another IKEA second hand bargain – which Elin bought two for the price of one. They were already ‘hacked’ when she bought them (someone has stuck vertical strips of wood to the front and then painted the entire unit) for a designer look! Clever.
Recently Elin replaced the coffee table for a marble one that she picked up second hand. But not without a DIY makeover of course!
It’s quite incredible what you can do with someone else’s cast offs, a little vision and some great craftsmanship, don’t you think?
Is it even the same room? What a transformation – and all bought for a song too!
Simply lovely – and so inspiring too. Is anyone else dying to get their hands on a second hand IKEA piece now? I might just go on marketplace and see what I can find!
Would you like to see a few other ikea hacks today?
Wishing you all a great day! I’ll be back on Friday with aa glimpse into the kitchen and dining area of our cabin with ‘Jul’ touches, hopefully see you then!
