First of all, a big thank you for voting. And yes, we have a winner! Congratulations to Chas for the awesome work on the Billy’s, Benno’s and miles of books. Chas’ Billy-Benno library garnered 28% of votes, while Marloes’ Rektangle vase bathroom wall came in at second, with over 23% of votes. A close fight to the end. The other favourite was Pippa’s Skimmer soap dish, which pulled in 13% of votes.
This year’s Ikea Hack of the Year kinda shifted things a little. No doubt, as some commented, repurposing/upcycling/whatever you call it is growing and does deserve a category of its own. Which may then leave “true-blue Ikea hacks” with a “purer” fight for the title. Definitely in the works for 2012.
O’verlays for the winner ! Besides bragging rights, Chas takes home a $150 gift card to spend at O’verlays. I have a feeling that the decorative fretwork panels will fit in beautifully in their French country house.
If you’re not sure what O’verlays are, check out the photos of their creations below and their website too.
