I recently booked a moving company for our move and was reading their damage coverage policy where it said they won’t cover any damage to “pressed wood furniture (i.e. Ikea-esque furniture)” because it isn’t meant to be moved. And I laughed because well, that’s basically all we own! I have learned a lot of about how to live with and love Ikea and other assemble-it-yourself furniture which might perhaps be a separate post but my #1 tip? Avoid veneer and only buy the solid wood pieces! But my favorite thing about build-it-yourself furniture is all the potential to customize it! Of course, my most popular Ikea inspired project is O’s play kitchen but we also made a whole curving wall of built-ins out of the ever popular Billy bookcase and that’s not even all that creative. So today I’m bringing you some of the coolest and most creative Ikea inspired projects I can find. As always, please click through and pin from the source! 15 Cool & Clever Ikea Hacks!  | littleredwindow.comWondering what tools you need to start working with furniture?
