At good, we’re all about bringing you easy ways to live a better life, which is why we teamed up with IKEA and Live Loud Girl for a morning of creativity and interiors hacks recently.

Dubai’s leading interior stylists and influencers joined us on Wednesday 26 September for an intimate event, where Linda and Flo from Live Loud Girl shared their inventive hacks with IKEA furniture.

Using some of IKEA’s most popular products, Linda and Flo created four bespoke pieces for the home, demonstrating how easy it is to add individual flair to your furniture.

Discover how, with a drill, some glue, paint and a lot of ingenuity, they transformed IKEA staples into four fresh designs for the family home.

EKET Cabinet + FROSTA legs = cool shelf

First up, Linda and Flo removed the door from the front of EKET Cabinet, then painted it a deep shade of indigo. Next, they took the legs from the iconic FROSTA stool and attached them to the base of the box to create a freestanding shelf.

IVAR side unit + LANDSKRONA legs = bathroom organiser

Next, the Live Loud Girls used a piece from one of their favourite storage solutions, the IVAR side unit, to create a ladder-style organiser for the bathroom. They screwed LANDSKRONA legs into the side of the shelving unit, perfect for hanging towels, the added ELLY and IVAR hooks for additional storage. Linda and Flo taught the crowd about layering textures and details, decorating the ladder with a TORKA bag and FULLFÖLJA scissors.

STOCKHOLM mirror + MOPPE drawers = mirrored shelf

Perfect for the bathroom or entry way, this nifty creation gives added functionality to the sleek STOCKHOLM mirror. First up, the girls glued together two drawers from the MOPPE set, then attached them to the mirror using specialist glass glue.

MOPPE drawers + SULARP legs = kids’ bookcase

That birch exterior and remaining drawers from the MOPPE set didn’t go to waste. Linda and Flo reinforced the exterior using panels from the drawers, then screwed in the stainless steel SULARP legs to create a cute storage solution for books and magazines.
