What can you do with Old IKEA furniture???  Found this cute blog that has differant ideas on what to do with misc pieces of IKEA furniture.. kinda quirky... just goes to show that every can be repurposed into something differant.

How about making a bed with built-in storage using old bookshelves? Just one idea showcased at ikeahacker, a brilliant blog that showcases inspired revamps of Ikea products. If you’ve never had a look there, take a minute to browse some of its quirky and inventive projects.

Wouldn't those bedroom dress boys be a distraction in staging?  I adore taking one thing and converting it to something else - what a fun website!

Kym,

One thing for sure, you'll never reassemble any of this stuff. It's not worth moving.

So, alternative uses makes a lot of sense.

Hi Kym - fun idea with the chairs, perhaps with an old beat up one for a cottage bedroom ...

I love the dress boys!  I don't think they'd work for staging, but the idea is really neat.

Converting the shelves to a bed works...

Hi Kym, this gives me ideas to use with my clients that are ready to throw out their Ikea furniture as they think it has seen better days.  I especially love the Besta cabinet that was upholstered and silver studs applied.  Here is a Pong chair that I recovered to update the look and a couple of large accent cushions that I made to go with it. Thanks for the link, I am book marking it for future reference
