"There are very affordable furniture pieces from IKEA that can be completely transformed with a little love and elbow grease – otherwise known as the infamous “IKEA hack” – there are TONS out there! We transformed basic IKEA shelves into “built ins” in our office by hanging them, adding molding, and painting, and they look like a million bucks! The true key to any décor on a budget is getting creative and thinking outside of the box – try to make the most expensive items less expensive, and you’ll save more than you think!" - Anna Ochoa of Fiddle Leaf Interiors
