Gosh darn it, some people are just so clever, aren’t they? We love it when people take something that is inexpensive and simple in design and give it a wham-bam makeover that we can replicate in our own homes. Here we take a look at 9 different IKEA hacks to help you pimp up the IKEA LATT children’s table and chair set ($39.99).
Geometric patterns show no sign of abating as an interior design trend. The use of the black and white Ikat patterned cushion against the gorgeous pastel mint triangles will see this piece integrating perfectly in the contemporary home. Via: Black Blonde Brunette.
Colour me happy
Here, an abundance of colour breathes life into a simple table and chairs set. The half circles were created using vinyl, but you could paint them on just as easily. We think this gorgeous piece would take pride of place in a playroom! Via: The Crafty Swedes.
The world at your child’s disposal? Now that is cool! This mamma used vintage-style wrapping paper, applied with glue to the table top. She then sealed it with acrylic spray, ready for her little tots to share their art with the world. Via: Apartment Therapy.
Chalk it up
One of the biggest home styling dilemmas that parents have is how to incorporate kid friendly furniture into family living spaces. This hack sees the IKEA LATT painted bright yellow to contrast with the monochrome rug. The addition of the chalkboard should see kids entertained leaving mummy finish her cup of tea before it goes cold. Via: Jolly Slice.

Art lovers will go gaga for this fantastic IKEA hack. Here, a clever bunny has turned the IKEA LATT table into an artist’s station complete with a roll of MALA drawing paper ($7.99).
