I really couldn’t finish off this year without featuring the best IKEA hacks that I came across this year! 

As many of you who know me and this blog know, I can never resist a good IKEA hack! I am always scanning Pinterest and Googling IKEA hacks, that I love to feature on this blog.

2020 has been such a great year for IKEA hacks. Maybe it is something to do with the fact that people had more time to be creative this year? Or just that IKEA hacks have really come of age and prominence? 

There is an IKEA hack for practically every piece of IKEA furniture and decor, and an IKEA hack for practically every single room in your home!

So here are 11 great IKEA hacks that I came across (or created myself) in 2020!  Enjoy looking at these great pieces, and perhaps making some yourself!
