10 Best Ikea Hacks of 2012

This past year I posted a few IKEA hack round-ups here from kids rooms to stylish home office ideas; and with each post I continually was impressed with the innovative and creative thought put behind each piece. So I thought it would be fun to round up some of the best ones from 2012. From customized billy bookcases to a clever window herb garden. Here’s this year’s top hacks!
