35 of the Most Colorful IKEA Hacks EVER
We know you’ve been yawning over that Malm dresser for a while now, and the Maskros pendant is starting to feel total boresville. Oh, and then there’s that Expedit leaning against the wall that you can hardly stand to look at anymore. Well, you’re in the right place. We’ve gathered together 35 of the brightest and best IKEA hacks we could find. Paintbrushes to the ready!
7. Malm Dresser: It’s obvious why the Malm dresser is so popular for hacks. It’s basically a blank canvas just waiting for you to splash it up. The stickers on this one make it bright enough for any kiddie’s room. (via Handmade Charlotte)
8. Bright Blue Kids Table: $25 is a great price when it comes to a child’s table and chairs set. But what makes it even better is when you see this hack and realize the opportunity $25 brings. (via Acire Adventures)
14. Pop of Green: A basic Molger painted bright green is a perfect way to bring a pop to a nursery or child’s bedroom. Not to mention, it makes for the ideal place to store all those stuffed animals. (via Donkey and the Carrot)
Do you have an IKEA piece that you think needs a makeover? Does one of these projects inspire you? Let us know below!
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
