20 Stylish Home Office IKEA Hacks

Jon from Happy Mundane did a really nice home office IKEA hack this past January using some fabulous inexpensive walnut woodgrain contact paper.  He had two projects he tackled one on his desk, the MICKE and another on ye ol’ classic ENETRI shelving unit. Both turned out amazingly well which has inspired me to look at contact paper in a whole new light.  The idea also inspired this post with 20 of the best home office IKEA hacks I could find.  Thanks to trusty ikeahacker.net, I found a few to feast our eyes upon.  See below:
