One of my favorite blogs is ikeahacker. It’s both entertaining and inspiring. Sure, a few of the hacks are “whack,” but that’s half the fun!
Not being handy myself (Julio is power tool god in this house â€“ I tend to avoid motorized tools at all costs. I’m actually quite accident prone – to the point that even electric can openers freak me out. “That’s right doctor. I severed my finger trying to open a can of soup.” But I digress.) Where was I? Oh yeah. Not being handy myself, I especially enjoy â€œhackeasâ€: simple IKEA hacks you can do in 30 minutes or less. They are right up my alley!
