{2 fabulous ikea diys}

I'm bringing you inspiration from the talented peeps in blogland today. People are getting so creative with making over IKEA items, it's blowing me away!! First up is the fabulous Bri from Me, you and a Wiener. This girl really has talent, she can make anything over in a snap and I love her regency sensibility! Bri took a plain jane IKEA Mikael desk like this one:

Gathered inspiration from the reigning queen of regency herself, Ms. Kelly Wearstler:

KW for Pickard

And turned her desk into this!!


Using what supplies, you may ask? You won't believe it:


Amazing! And Catherine of the delicious blog, The Golden Touch has made over her IKEA dresser using fabric and the results are delightful! She took this boring piece:
Did a bit of this:


And turned it into this!! What a creative idea! And she even added some pretty art work to the top surface, go here to see.



Have you come across any DIY's lately that really blew you away? Or maybe a project of your own? Spill the beans, I am loving all the inspiration!!

Both these projects are so great! I was thinking of doing an Ikea hack for my coffee table but none of my ideas have won yet. I will be making an upholstered headboard out of a shower curtain this weekend though!
