When it comes to furniture, Ikea is a go-to for many of us. And it’s no surprise why. Not only are their pieces good quality and beautifully designed and crafted, but they’re also incredibly versatile. With a little creativity, you can transform an Ikea furniture piece like a table or a booshelf into a totally different thing according to your needs. A dresser could transform into a TV stand, or even a storage unit into a faux fireplace (yes, really!).
The possibilities are endless, and that’s what makes Ikea furniture so much fun to work with. Whether you’re on a tight budget or simply love the challenge of DIY projects, Ikea pieces allow you to get creative and make something unique. Plus, they’re usually pretty easy to assemble and disassemble, making it easy to repurpose them whenever you want. This is what motivated TikTok influencer @pakhuis.wonen to make one amazing transformation using an Ikea bookshelf.
Creating a Faux Fireplace Using an IKEA Bookshelf
Of course, you cannot add real fire to the equation when talking about wooden furniture, but this creation by is actually amazingly easy to do, and it looks like the real thing. This DIY project involved a few tools and a lot of imagination. @pakhuis.wonen created an opening in the storage table before installing a remote-operated fireplace, and the result is truly astonishing. It’s the perfect addition to their media center and adds a cozy touch to the room.
This does not use fire or any fuel, but only water to create a vapor that, illuminated with LED lights, creates the sensation of being a fireplace. But this isn’t just impressive to us. Fellow TikTok users were quick to flood the comments section with praise. “That looks awesome,” said one user, while another called it “amazing.” And who can blame them? It’s the kind of thing you never knew you needed until you see it.
So, next time you’re looking at your IKEA furniture and thinking it’s just another basic piece, think again. Get creative and transform it into something truly unique and impressive. Just like @pakhuis.wonen did. Who knows? You might just surprise yourself with what you can create!
