I love stunning IKEA hacks and tutorials.

Decorating your home can be expensive. That’s why I love IKEA. IKEA is a furniture retailer that sells affordable, ready-to-assemble furniture, kitchen appliances, and home accessories.

IKEA makes it easy to decorate your home on a budget. Not only that, but the internet is filled with hacks and tutorials for improving and repurposing your purchases from IKEA. With a little time, you can take a $20 table and turn it into something that looks like it cost you hundreds of dollars. It’s really quite fascinating.

I’ve rounded up 17 absolutely gorgeous IKEA hacks and tutorials.
