IKEA might be the single most convenient thing to ever happen to condo-dwellers, but don’t just settle for having the same end tables as everyone else in your building.
We are a generation obsessed with DIYs. Perhaps this is due to this generation’s rejection of anything mass-produced, which goes hand-in-hand with our obsession with all things personalised and artisanal. Crafting, hacking and creating things with our own two hands fills the Millennial void with a big ol’ dollop of purpose. So roll up your sleeve and prep your craft corner because these IKEA DIY hacks are not only going to satisfy your inner craftsman but also spice up your home in a big way.
