The unfinished pine wood collection is the perfect canvas for a creative makeover.
While IKEA was founded 75 years ago, its ever-popular IVAR collection is celebrating its 50th birthday this year. Known for its minimalist shelving units and unfinished pine wood construction, the collection has been a favorite of DIYers and IKEA hackers for decades. So it comes as no surprise that to gear up for the big celebration, the IKEA blog Livet Hemma is paying tribute to IVAR with clever new ways to hack the collection.
From painting the fronts of IVAR wall-hanging cabinets, to adding leather pulls to the doors, the experts at IKEA prove that hacking these pieces doesn’t require a big investment (in either time or money). Browse the stunningly simple upgrades below, then visit the nearest IKEA—your next weekend project awaits.
