    Make a toddler swing from a high chair. A reversible hack.

    Which kid doesn’t love a good swing? Here’s how Tom Builder hacked the ANTILOP high chair into a toddler swing. The best thing is, the ropes can be wound up behind it and the chair returned to its primary function as a high chair. Is that cool or…

    Cat chair hammock: So cushy your cat will love it

    My cats love “levitating”, so I made this cat chair hammock hack for them. It’s super simple and so effective. My cats love it. The MALINDA cushion is ridiculously cheap and you can actually use any chair with the side bars for resting the feet…

    Hackers help: Functional mini kitchen for toddlers?

    Hi there! Has there been a submission for a play kitchen with running water? I’ve been scouring the archives, but came up somewhat dry (no pun intended). I’m shooting for more in-depth hack than a DUKTIG remodel. I’m looking to create a real, f…

    Pee on this IKEA ad and get a discount (if it turns pink!)

    If there’s one thing IKEA is good at hacking, it’s advertising. They’ve done some brilliant work over the years and now, they surprise us again. With pee, no less. It may sounds gross, but the concept is genius. The headline says: “Peeing on…

    Photographer turns to IKEA for Rembrandt photo shoot

    What does Rembrandt have to do with IKEA? Nothing much except a photographer in Norway somehow managed to put them together in a surprising Rembrandt photo shoot. A camera store, Stavanger Foto commissioned Stig Håvard Dirdal to create a Christm…

  • How to hack a flat front IKEA corner sink

    How to hack a flat front IKEA corner sink

    We built an IKEA kitchen corner base cabinet to accommodate a regular corner sink instead of that horrible “bat-wing” sink they sell. Our tiny kitchen using the IKEA corner sink hack came out beautiful with our 24 inch wide appliances. (Dishwashe…

    Hackers Help: How to shorten PAX wardrobes?

    I moved into a new house with a huge open closet room with no storage. I designed my entire walk-in gorgeous closet using the PAX system, but now have realized my ceiling is too low. The ceiling is 78 1/4” tall. Can the PAX system be cut down? Woul…

    IKEA names and their meaning. Finally!

    Those of us who don’t speak Swedish or Danish are clearly at a disadvantage when it comes to IKEA. Sure, like any diehard fan I can rattle off a few dozen IKEA names. But what do they mean? And how do you pronounce the A balancing a little circle o…

    Nothing if not a disco pirate, living the arrgh life with power tools

    When you look at this living room, you don't assume I live in rural Nebraska, do you? Now that you know that, you assume my neighbors assume the worst. You'd be correct. There's one fucking good thing about Nebraska though, and it's all I can think o…

    Arrrg, get me some friggin' Ikea...

    Do you know that I live farther from an Ikea store than most Canadians? Yep, true, dead center betwixt the one in Chicago and the one in Dallas. Either is a 14 hour trip. Sure, mapquest says Chicago's 4 hours closer, but when you get up there the tra…

    A girl and her Ted.

    My niece Ainsley just turned one and for her birthday she got this huge furry tan bear. It was instantly named 'Ted' for the movie-bear it resembles. Ainsley and Ted have been pretty inseparable since meeting, and every time she sees him she jumps on…

    Victoria’s Secret Ads Are Lies. All Lies.
