IKEA Makes It So Easy To Add Wireless Charging To Your Furniture

IKEA SJÖMÄRKE Qi wireless charging pad turns almost any flat surface into a charger. IKEA is not a newcomer to the wireless charging scene, having incorporated them in various furniture such as lamps or tables. But they were, at best, limiting as the items did not always fit in with the decor or needs of the user. The SJÖMÄRKE charging pad aims to change that. With it, you gain the flexibility to mount it on a desk, shelf or bedside […]

How we made a Custom Family Calendar & Command Center

The world has been upside down for a while now, and we figured it’s about time to start to take control, even if only in the smallest way.  We used to have a family calendar on our fridge, but our new French door refrigerator made the setup obsolete.

Pop Art on IKEA Dresser Makes a Bold Impact

I always wanted to create something unique and I knew that the RAST dressers would be the perfect size to create on.

3 Ways to hack a Fold Down Table for a Small Space

I would really like to have a drop-leaf table next to my window, but I’m having trouble finding one that folds down small enough. Most are still the size of a full table when folded.  I need it to stay within about 16″ of the wall to keep the room from looking cluttered when it’s folded down and not being used.  The BJURSTA wall-mounted drop-leaf table would be perfect, but the windows are too low to mount the table underneath.  […]
