I Modify IKEA by Charlotte Rivers and Elyse Major

The book, I Modify IKEA By Charlotte Rivers and Elyse Major is a pretty creative guide of over 50 projects! It can help you turn something into a new and beautiful piece. For example, there are ideas for creating tealight holders, outdoor storage, bar cabinet, rolling bar cart, tree swing, window seat, painted blocks and so much more! Since there are 50 different projects, it'll keep you busy for a long time. However, each DIY comes with the list of materials, the specific item from IKEA, a helpful hint, and the steps you need to create and finish each project.
It's basically perfect for anyone, even if you never DIY. In my opinion, it's not that difficult to understand and has everything you will be required to have to create that specific project in the directions. Plus, it gives you an estimated time and how difficult it may be to do. Another example would be the Mail Organizer. This is using a napkin holder from IKEA and can be bought for under 5 dollars. Next, you'll see that it's got two other required items, the spray paint(up to you on color) and mounting hardware( up to you on the type, but will share some good choices). For this project, the time is about 30 minutes and the difficulty is basic. So it isn't hard and with the few steps to follow it'll be a quick project anyone can do!
Again, there are over 50 projects to work on and each with a beautiful photo of the finished project! I feel so inspired by the ideas and projects inside to get started on making some interesting crafty home goodies! I think with the influence of my mom and her DIY to old furniture and this book, I feel inspired to get creative and do some DIY for my own home and possibly gifts for others.
