Tarva is one of the most popular dressers by Ikea, and I’m sure that most of you have one or more at home. But Ikea is known for making plain furniture that looks like a canvas and requires some creativity. I’d like to share some amazing Ikea hacks that will blow your mind and that can fit lots of styles and spaces.
Staining gives furniture a natural and chic look, and you can find your perfect stain shade and renovate your Tarva. A nice idea is to combine both painting and staining: stain only the sides and paint the front, or frame the stained drawers with paint. Change knobs for those that match and voila – a new dresser is done!
This is the most popular way to hack Ikea’s pieces. Handpaint your Tarva with bold colors and abstract patterns, stencil the item with different colors and shapes, create an ombre effect painting every drawer with a different shade, make a colorful striped piece. Change the legs for trendy hairpin ones, change different knobs or handles and attach them. Rock anything you like and what fits your space. Get inspired!
