EVERYONE loves the simplicity of IKEA furniture.
But sometimes knowing your living room or bedroom looks exactly like everyone else’s isn’t ideal.
This crafty homeowner took things into her own hands when she decided to upgrade her IKEA Pax Wardrobe.
Emma is an interiors pro and while decorating her first home she decided to give her boring IKEA wardrobe a new life.
“Sure, I could’ve just built the Pax wardrobe and moved on, that was my goal if I felt like I couldn’t do it, maybe add the panel moulding.
“Instead, I raised it up so I could add baseboard, made a drywall box onto and made it look built-in.”
Emma’s crafty DIY skills paid off, the lush moulding and built-in look transformed the basic Ikea wardrobe.
Her bedroom ended up looking so luxurious, you’d never be able to tell it was a DIY job.
The posh wardrobe is actually an IKEA basic, the simple addition of panelling made all the difference.
Emma only had to pay for the wooden panelling and wood to raise the wardrobe, so the project worked out super cheap too.
Viewers of the hack couldn’t believe how professional it looked.
“This is perfect for that room, it looks like it was there all along.”
A second added: “This looks so high-end! I love what you’ve done so much.”
Another quipped: “The panelling definitely takes it up a notch and makes it look custom.”
