One little cart. So simple. So adorable. So many possibilities. It can hold spices or beauty supplies. Plus, the wheels make it super easy to move around. Look at these Raskog cart hacks and pick your favorite one so you can bring home this fun cart next time you head to IKEA.
I adore bookshelves, because I love books. Again simple lines on furniture pieces lend themselves to be manipulated into something so much better. Add some molding, doors and more for a new look that isn’t just a plain bookcase like these Billy makeovers.
