Every house can use a bit of "glam" and what better way than to start with something from IKEA. Huh? It never occurred to me, but IKEA devotees are nothing if not super creative. Take these plain IKEA glass vases as an example. A dip of gold paint turns them into something really luxe. Let's take a look at some other inspiring projects.
Gold trim dresses up a basic IKEA chest of drawers. And every bedroom could use one or two of IKEA's sheepskin rugs ($14.99 each) for even more glam.
IKEA bookcases spray painted gold.
Floating shelves covered in copper foil.
Marbleized contact paper and a gold toned drawer pull.
Classic Greek Key wood stencils applied to drawers of an IKEA chest.
My favorite is a vanity stool made from the IKEA Marius stool ($4.99). We have the black metal "un-hacked" version on our patio. I had no idea that could be transformed into this sexy little stool. Next time I'm at IKEA, I'll be letting my imagine run wild as a shop rather than concentrating on not forgetting the frozen Swedish pancakes. Speaking of which, wouldn't a dollop of caviar glam those up?
