Found this very interesting project post at Apartment Therapy and I think it is a fabulous project for anyone who is interested in “make my own” & low cost IKEA hack.
Can anyone guest the bone of this project? It’s the famous IKEA REGOLIT rice paper Pendant lamp. Ashley turned into an amazing designer quality piece by only spending $11.68. Want the detail? Here is the break down.
Here is the inspiration piece for Ashley.

Question: Have you done any hack to your lamp shades, how did they turn out?
I am by no means a IKEA hacker. But I like to recycle or reuse some of the IKEA left overs. This weekends project is a no sew shopping tote made from Ritva curtain, a stool cover and some old IKEA alexsandra fabric. Here is what I made over the weekend, so can you.
Wearing it as tote… Or…
If you are a fan of high tech, if you love hack, if you are a blog diggest, you’ve heard about lifehacker. I’ve come acrossed the site about a year ago and bookmarked it ever since then. When I was doing my research, I found out that they actually have a post for IKEA DIYs. I thought it might be interesting to share with all of ya.
Lifehacker has assembled their top 10 IKEA DIYs here, some of our favorites are: Put together a switchable charging station; Make your own custom charging station; Turn an IKEA door into a desk; Create seriously simple knife storage. Most of them are great for a quick weekend project. So if you are not busy planning summer trips, some of them might be fun to do and will benefit your life for a very long term. The best news is, you don’t have to read the manual anymore, make something different that doesn’t look IKEA to anyone but only you know the secrets.
