The IKEA catalogue signals a start to the new school year and has everyone flocking to IKEA for the latest in home goods. We were at IKEA over the Long Weekend before school started and let me tell you, it was not for the faint of heart - school-aged children running around, University-bound kids shopping for dorm room necessities, adults frantically trying to get their hands on whatever they had circled in the catalogue... 

All of that had us thinking... why don't we try out a few IKEA "hacks" to make our kitchen a little different than most? And if you're considering selling your home, these are simple, affordable hacks that will help with making your kitchen stand out from the rest. Here are a few hacks we've gathered from the Internet that we're going to try out. If you've got an IKEA hack that you'd like to share (for anywhere in the home), leave us a comment below or email us! We'd love to hear from you. 

 

GRUNDTAL Rails

Spray painting the super versatile rails will give it a whole new look. The rails fit perfectly under your cabinets to give you more counter space and still have things within reach when you need it. We've even installed these one time in a bedroom with limited space for hanging up jeans.

After seeing this photo, we're sold! Look at how these lights stand out after a coat of copper spray paint? Beautiful!

Another simple hack that will give your stools an instant upgrade. Make use of the spray paint that you'll be using for the above hacks and carry on with the theme!
