IKEA Hack is basically the idea of how customers can customize, modify and personalize their IKEA furniture to create more versatile furniture that suits their needs.

How to Refurbish and paint IKEA Furniture

IKEA furniture offers limited styles and colors. But a good refurbishment and a paint job will bring out the best designs and transform them into décor of your liking. Refurbishment entails joining similar or different parts of the IKEA furniture to create anew but more versatile furniture.

Painting IKEA furniture is quite an easy task. Clean and wipe the furniture before painting. Roll your first coat of primer and let dry. Apply a second coat of primer to enhance complete coverage and allow it to dry. Now gently apply the first thin layer of your topcoat and let it dry. Apply a second layer of your topcoat again to ensure complete coverage. Lastly, cover the furniture with a sealer to acquire a nice smooth finish.
