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.
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.
1. Industrial Shelving made with Ikea "Hyllis" galvanized steel shelving units ($15 each), spray painted with black matte and stained wood planks (antique oak and teak) (via http://www.skreytumhus.is/?p=26183)
2. Storage Bed Frame - Sektium cabinets laid on their side, screwed together with 2x4, and then added a box frame and headboard (Via: http://www.skreytumhus.is/?p=26183)
3. Pendant light - now i've built a fair amount of lights, twinkles, and lamps, (once a rocking horse into a light) in my day, but would you believe me if I told you this was made from a plate? (Via : http://www.smittenstudioonline.com/diy-a-modern-pendant-lamp/)
4. Door Frames - who needs traditional doors when you could have these beautiful beveled glass hanging doors? Get the DIY here: http://www.ikeahackers.net/2011/10/turn-pax-rails-into-sliding-doors.html
5. Cat box hide-y hole for when those wonderful kitteh's need to go potty, and you don't really want to have a good place to put an open cat box, this hidey hole is the best option. Get the How-to here:http://www.ikeahackers.net/2011/10/turn-pax-rails-into-sliding-doors.html

"After deciding to move to Denver from NYC, my father and I decided to spend our vacation in Denver back in August, for the purpose of beginning the search for a new home. My father and I contacted Marc, and he made what we thought would be a long, drawn out process seem relatively easy. Before we knew it, my father and I owned a home by the time we finished our vacation in nine days.
Marc was very professional, knowledgeable, courteous, patient and an all-around great person. He took the time to educate us, as we were first time home owners, and show us all around the Denver metro area. He also continues to follow up with us after the sale, which we really appreciate. I highly recommend Marc for your relocation needs.
