Put Some Paint On It.

This is quite a clever idea I found over on IKEA. They invited blogger Agnes Hammar of Hej Regina to join them in their idea lab and she shared her ideas to freshen up IKEA furniture using a bit of colorful paint. Instead of replacing furniture you tire of, Agnes gave pieces new life by painting background scenarios on the walls. We don’t necessarily need to fix the furniture – maybe we just need to freshen up what’s around it instead.

I love the shapes behind the shelving — it adds so much personality and dimension to a very ordinary space. Agnes says you “can skip the classic headboard and frame in your bed with some mountains instead. Tape makes it easy to get nice & straight lines!” Great and inexpensive ideas with just a little paint and ingenuity.

  1. Cuuute! I’m a big fan of painting behind a shelf – Jungalow does this really nicely too – but those pink triangles just take the biscuit. I’m in love.
