Repurposing items for nifty and imaginative alternate uses is where itâ€™s at, but repurposing Ikea items? Now thatâ€™s where youâ€™re bound to get a project at a price you canâ€™t beat. Iâ€™m always amazed by the projects featured on Ikea Hackers, but for those of us with less time, space or power tool prowess, nothing compares to a straight up, no-mess repurpose. Lillian of Domestic Simplicity has a great one with her use of Ikea spice racks, $3.99 each, to store childrenâ€™s books. With their slim design, the racks are the perfect way to let little ones see the covers of their favorite books while preserving floor space in small bedrooms. â€“Sarah C.
