20 “Done For You” IKEA Hacks worth checking out

Etsy is my go-to place for IKEA with a twist. In the treasure trove of a site, I often find fun and unique items such as “vintage” IKEA and readymade IKEA hacks, running the gamut of vinyl decals to cute IKEA accessories. An entire industry, seriously.

Which is fine by me.

I, for one, have seasons when I lack the skill or required-attention-span to hack, so if I can get it done for me at a reasonable price, and done well … YES, please!

With the holiday season round the corner and Black Friday in a few days, I’ll point out a few Etsy readymade IKEA hacks that caught my attention.

What IKEA hacks to buy on Etsy this Black Friday?


While IKEA has come up with their own limited-edition range of clothing, it doesn’t even come close to the parody T-shirts on Etsy. Great as a gift for IKEA fans.

IKEA hacks for Kids

Artists on Etsy are constantly coming up with smart solutions for IKEA items. Such as this bestselling footrest for the ANTILOP high chair. It’s so easy to add on to the high chair without the need of any tools. And baby’s feet are so much happier.

And to complete the look, wrap the silver metal legs with bamboo leg wraps. Then, add a way too cute giraffe high chair seat.

Moving on from the ANTILOP, let’s makeover the DUKTIG bed. Change out the bedding of the DUKTIG doll bed with a new set of quality linens.

Create more play options via the TROFAST bins + FLISAT table combo. Drop in a Colour Activity Board or a kitchen set and voilà, a whole new game.

Lastly, organise the TROFAST bins with lovely custom wood labels.
