IKEA Hacks For Kids

Isn’t it so weird how kid’s stuff is just as expensive, or even more so, than adult ones? Ludicrous, I say to you! But we love our children, and we love seeing them happy, and good investments aren’t hard to come by. But this doesn’t mean that we should spend so much, when we can just hack them. And hack them, we shall! Introducing the top 25 best IKEA hacks you and your kids will love!

I cannot stress just how important (and gorgeous!)  Dresser drawers

 are. Your baby deserves nothing but the best, and IKEA knows a thing or two about the whole ball park. All you need is a pattern and some painter’s paint, as well as a nice, flat drawer. With a lot of patience, you’ll have a dresser fit for a future king. Apartment Therapy has you covered.
