10 x DIY IKEA Hacks

Hi! It’s the first day of August and my last two weeks at work before I can finally fully focus on the new house and the little one that we can hopefully welcome next month! July went by so fast, spending lots of my spare time at IKEA. As you can guess, my new house will be full of IKEA pieces combined with some vintage items I stumbled upon by accident. On top of that I collected a few designer items because every house needs a few eyecatchers. These are actually my favorites. I wish I could furnish my whole house with designer pieces but unfortunately my bank account doesn’t allow me to. Luckily there are  a million of IKEA hacks ideas on the internet, that can make these simple items look like a million bucks. Here are my ten favorite ones:

1. The prettiest IKEA hack ever (via Babble).

2. The IKEA Rast 3 Drawer Chest never looked so chic before due to this IKEA rast campaign hack (via Almost makes perfect).

10 x DIY Kidsroom stuff

Besides the kitchen and bathroom, there’s off course the nursery that has priority (more about the process and completed space will follow). As much as I love furnishing and decorating this room, newborns don’t care anything yet about how their room looks like or what pieces of furniture or toys are in it (and I hope mine doen’t untill she’s all grown up and can take care of it herself :)). So’ we’re gonna keep it simple, get her some basic items and fun decorations, and personalize it by incorporating a few easy and cheap DIY elements. Here some ideas to share with you:

1. Every nursery needs a mobile. I’m gonna make my own Cloud Nursery Mobile (via Apartment Therapy).

2. Or this Cloud Mobile (via Pimp and Pomme).

10 x Valentine crafts

Valentine Collage

Since my brother was born on Valentine’s day, we normally celebrate his birthday that day but since he will be in London this year I have to think about something else to do. I won’t expect my hubby to organize anything because unfortunately, he isn’t much of a romanticist. Although I am not a very romantic person either, I want to do or make at least something in order to celebrate our happy eight year romance. Last year I made some DIY Valentine cards but I am not sure yet what to make this year. I’ve rounded up a few Valentine craft projects I love:

1. These DIY Bud Vases to put in my roses (via Britt + Co).

Paper Flowers

Last summer, I was crafting lots of paper flowers for my upcoming wedding (which seems ages ago now). Besides a bunch of flower garlands, I was planning to make a small flower wall but found out that the venue didn’t allow me to stick anything on the wall:(. Eventually I made small flower cardboard instead to still have some of a flower backdrop. But I still have all the paper flowers, which I am gonna reuse to decorate the wall of my future home. It’s been a while, but here the result:
