Happy Friday … IKEA Mini Up-Cycle Project

Hello friends and welcome to the blog today. If this is your first time stopping by, I hope you stay for a while and consider subscribing.

Happy, Happy Friday.  I hope everyone is doing well today, and here we are at the end of another wonderful week.

Earlier this week I was feeling a lot of anxiety and stress about my move because I had been doing the tours, and reaching out and negotiating with no responses.  But I’m here to tell you that I got my place, and I move in just 2 1/2 weeks.

Currently I’m in packing mode, and getting everything ready, but just because I’m packing doesn’t mean that I don’t have time for a mini-project.

IKEA Up-Cycle … Vittsjo Shelf

For the past few years every piece of furniture was purchased without thought, and only need.  I only got serious about matching anything together about a year ago, so I purposefully purchased bland white furniture.  At the time I had no plans because I figured a good color paint would contrast with that furniture.

However as a renter, my painting is limited and I just don’t want to go though all the frustration of having to paint it back, so I would purchase plain furniture that could work with any space.

I’ve only had this shelf for a few months but since I had some supplies left over from a previous project I figured it was a perfect way not to let anything go to waste.

The supplies I used were:

IKEA Shelf 1

  1. Vittsjo Shelf Unit (IKEA)
  2. Floor Pops Peel & Stick Vinyl Tiles

Here’s what I did…

  • First I cleared my shelf, and wiped it down so the tiles could have a better adhesion to the surface

  • I planed out how I wanted the design to look and spacing

  • From there all I did was peel off the back and stick them down
  • I used a few heavy bins to rest on the tiles and keep them down, and waited an hour before I removed them

  • Then I just styled my self and that was it!

Final IKEA upcycle

This was the easiest project that I’ve done in a long time, and  I would highly recommend these to transform any piece of furniture.  You could also use kitchen wall tiles if your going for a different look.  There are hundreds of different designs to choose from, and the possibilities are endless.

With that I’ll end here.  Thanks so much for checking out my post today.  I want to thank everyone who told me to be patient in this moving process and not stress.  Your kind words mean so much to me during this time.

Have a great weekend! — Peace —
