simon has a small ikea hack, as he terms it, to share with us.
“last month, we bought an oddvar chair (can’t find the link on ikea’s website). to improve the look, we bought an asian newspaper and wrapped it around the pieces of the chair using paste before assembling it. finally, we used ‘thick’ varnish to protect the newspaper and make the chair washable.”
