IKEA HACK Cube Storage Shelf Unit Makeover

3 Materials
3 Hours
If you have been following the blog for awhile now, you know how much I love a free furniture find! Especially when it is fun like an Ikea hack. Those are some of my favorite types of furniture flips. I am lucky to live in an area where a lot of nice furniture pieces (with little to no damage) get put out on the curb. It is kinda crazy.

I didn’t have to go far for the project I am showing you today. I went out to my recycling bins and someone from my building who had moved put a few pieces out there. I realized this is a cube storage unit from IKEA. I love a good Ikea hack to make something so generic more unique and personal.
This piece was a quick and easy one. I made my DIY chalk paint recipe and mixed it with some Behr latex paint that I have used on previous furniture projects like…
Check out the before photo! This piece was perfectly fine, just a little dusty.
A couple coats of chalk paint.
A couple fabulous stencils....
And I looks like a completely different piece.
