One bright happy day around 30 years ago, I was searching the ‘net for how to assemble something IKEA. I stumbled into this great site – IKEAhacker.
My reaction: COOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!
They hack IKEA furniture to turn them into something else or the same thing, only cooler. Hacks can range from simply giving something a paint job to actually building something completely different using IKEA parts.
And I found this post:
Finally, a great idea for all of my earrings and necklaces! So, I zoomed to IKEA and bought three Fira drawers.
Left them in our bedroom for a few weeks.
Left them alone for a week.
Then Nick and I got to work and gave them all a coat of black paint.
And they’ve been waiting ever since for their second coat and a few coats of polyurethane. (No, they’re not still on the floor – they’re in our bedroom, smiling along with our chandelier, on the floor)
And my necklaces have been badly tangled ever since.
And then I saw this: Procrastinator Proclamations
So my deadline is October 20.
