IKEA Besta is a simple and really Scandinavian furniture collection that fits in most modern rooms, but looks too plain and a bit boring. To avoid boring looks, we offer you some ideas on how to reuse and hack your Besta units by rotating them however you want – from a TV console to a toy storage unit. Let’s look at these amazing examples.
IKEA Besta is actually a TV, but you can give it a ton of cool looks that will suit your interior and just stand out a little. Paint it, add a wood panel, switch handles for cool leather handles, bold geode buttons, or anything else you like. Vary the open and closed storage compartments and attach the piece to the wall for a floating look.
Sideboard and consoles
IKEA Besta is a perfect storage unit, and all you need to do is freshen it up. How? Paint it, stencil it, add creative legs such as metal or hairpin legs, make a cool top out of wood or even stone or concrete, stencil and change its configuration. Create a cool floating entrance console using an IKEA Besta unit and lacquer shelf, and paint each part a different color for a bold look. Cover the entire sideboard with marble sticky paper for a sophisticated feel. Dress up the entire piece with reclaimed wood for a creative, rustic look.
A bench with storage space is an ideal piece for every modern home, it is a multifunctional unit for rocking. IKEA Besta is great for making such a piece. Add a wooden top or an upholstered seat or cushion to make sitting here more comfortable. Use drawers or compartments or cover the entire part and let access just by lifting the top. Add pillows, bedspreads and anything else you’d like to enjoy here.
IKEA Besta can be used in many other ways, such as a bedside table and a cinema projector. It can be transformed into a colorful toy box or a functional desk with plenty of storage space and a comfortable worktop. Let yourself be inspired and create your own piece!
Although summer is coming and you might say that it is a season of cold and icy drinks, I can say that hot tea and tea only are always topical. If you are used to making tea in pots rather than bags, you may need a cozy tea to make the tea brew better and faster. You can comfortably sew, crochet or even knit a tea, it's up to you and your skills. I've prepared a small round-up of tea cuddles that are sure to make your brew perfect. Let's look at that!
Here is a vintage tea cozy made of different types of fabric and trim. The piece is rather neutral and cute, because the author has found suitable and cool fabrics with different patterns and also without patterns. You can also change the colors and go for something extra bold. Get inspired and get ready to sew!
I love this cute piece - it's blue and white, made of very catchy fabric and a lace trim for a chic touch. This cozy tea is not only super practical, it also looks really cute in your kitchen or on your table. It is also a great gift for someone who loves tea. Looks good!
You don't want to sew or knit a lot? Then choose this tutorial! This piece is made entirely from an old sweater. You just need to cut out a suitable piece for your teapot and sew the edges. The decor of the tea is entirely up to you - it can be pearls, sequins, ribbons, artificial flowers, berries, and much more, it's entirely up to you!
This super colorful and fun tee is very convenient to use because it has an additional pocket. You can fill it with whatever you like, but it's mostly for tea bags. Combine two different types of fabric and add trimmings in between. Place a pocket in the middle - you can choose two, one on each side. Get inspired and enjoy sewing!
Make a chic and stylish tea cozy with elegant lace and pearl appliqués for a vintage feel. Ice blue linen fabric was layered and fringed, and the appliqués make it look vintage and very chic. Not only is it a nice accessory for your kitchen, but also a cool gift for someone who loves tea.
If you like bold colors and prints, you will like this idea too! This is a bold blue and white tea that is cozy with a bold green, rippled touch. Choose a matching or contrasting fabric to make this table cozy and to spice up the summer or spring table with such an accessory. Voila!
Crocheted cuddly toys
Do you love funky and moody looks? Crochet this colorful and fun pineapple tea cozy! An idea like this is great for summer - pineapples are really summer fruits that add a fun twist to the decor, and you can get this cozy really quickly if you know how to crochet. I also like the natural look of the pineapple - there are some leaves on top too! Enjoy!
This is a simple crochet tea that is snugly shaped like a sack, looks cute, and pretty modern - no old-fashioned appliqués, no vintage patterns, or lace trimmings. Once you are comfortable with crocheting, you will get comfortable very quickly. Choose a neutral color for a more modern look or a bold color to add a pop of color. Enjoy!
