I’m back this week with a DIY post! This idea is not something I came up with on my own, but unlike many other posts on this idea, I show you how I achieved this beautiful DIY Gold Ikea Shelf Hack!
When we moved into our house I was so excited to finally upgrade our style and décor. When I was on my own and when we first got married we bought a few nice pieces but mostly utilized whatever we could find from friends or at the local thrift store. After we moved we decided it was time we started to upgrade our home and make it feel more “grown up.”
During the summer while I waited to hear back from jobs, I started getting sucked into Pinterest (anyone else know what that’s like!?!). I collected ideas into Pinterest boards by room (Living Room / Office-Guest Room) and I kept coming across Ikea Hacks. My favorite was spray painting Ikea Vittsjo shelving units gold but I couldn’t really find tips for how to do it. Today I share with you how I made a classy shelving unit for my office for less than $100.
