IkeaHackGoldShelf2IkeaHackGoldShelf4IkeaHackGoldShelf6IkeaHackGoldShelf3Are you ready for the easiest Ikea hack bookshelf you’ve ever seen? I seem to have gone a little spray painting crazy in my house, but I can’t contain my excitement for this effortless transformation. I was looking for a brass bookshelf and I found a black metal one at Ikea for $70! With some gold metallic spray paint, I created an easy DIY brass shelf.  The hard work was putting the shelf together (never fails I have to put Ikea furniture together twice!). After I assembled it, I brought it outside and spray painted the entire thing, except for the glass. I bought the shelf for my office that I’m still in the process of decorating. Slowly but surely it will get done : ) Have any of you hacked Ikea furniture that you love?

  7. […] I’m going to have to formulate a plan to make a similar etagere to the one in the mock room on the cheap, since the one in the plan is a tad pricey for me ($3700.00). I’ve seen a couple IKEA hacks floating around on Pinterest, so I might do something similar by painting the shelf a chrome finish and adding some type of “X” detailing to the sides. Here’s a gold one that I found over at Sugar and Charm.  […]
