Ikea hacks make for a fun, adventurous, and rewarding DIY project. Plus, farmhouse style decor is ultra-chic and popular. Therefore, Ikea and farmhouse style go hand in hand with these unbelievably beautiful (and easy) hack ideas.
Ikea hacks and farmhouse style – these two are a match made in paradise. Given how easy it is to personalize Ikea furniture, turning them into farmhouse pieces is an affordable way to add to your farmhouse decor.
While you may long for farmhouse style furniture, its popularity can cause the price tag to be much higher than many people want to pay. Take matters into your own hands by making your own!
Easier-Than-You-Think Farmhouse Style Ikea Hacks
The magnetic draw to Ikea furniture is the wallet-friendly cost. The downside is that the furniture looks very simple, and due to the affordable price everyone on your block probably has the same piece.
The solution is surprisingly easy – take the simple furniture base Ikea provides and upgrade it with farmhouse charm to make it fit your decor perfectly.
I have scoured the web to find 15 amazing examples of farmhouse style Ikea hacks that you will absolutely love and want to create for your own home. Let’s dive right in.

This is another one of those Ikea hacks that caused me to do a double-take to make sure it was really Ikea furniture.
