5 Best Ikea Hacks For Homeowners

Ikea- the wonder-mart of innovation, design, functionality, and simplicity- is here in the metro area. It's a mecca of build-it-yourself desks, simple chairs, and wonderful Swedish meatballs.  Image title

Of course, the best part of ikea is the built-in functionality of the things they sell, but sometimes you can modify, or hack, these items to make them even better for your home. There's hundreds of ikea hacks you can pull, but here's the five best that we have found specifically for homeowners.
