Ikea plays a big roll on the Scandinavian style around the word. What I like the most about Ikea furniture is the infinity of possibilities to personalise your own stye, according to your needs and likes - the web site Ikea Hackers is one of the best examples.
This is one of my Ikea hacks. I ADORE my Ikea Bonde. I wanted to personalise it with other colors and textures, and finally I found a super solution I am very happy with.
I was visiting a local hardware store and found a laminate vinyl floor that they had on sale: Senso rustic from Gerflor . It has the perfect thickness to cover the bench doors, is easy to cut and self adhesive. Too bad I am not changing the house floor because this was a very smart alternative!
The bench is decorated with blue details from my mom's paintings, the beautiful blue vase from Ikea's True Blue Collection that I got from my good friend Silvia, candles and two cool prints.
I designed the 11A print, our house number, using as a background one of pictures I took last new years eve. The H print is a typographic art print inspired by the Norwegian Rosemaling style from Eva Juliet.
I replace the handlers with this leather pulls using my old belt. I wanted to do this for the longest time!
What do you think about my hack?
