Ladies and gentlemen, get ready to have your socks blown off! This is one of the most exciting and awe-inspiring IKEA hacks I have stumbled upon, and I bet you will think so too.
This is a Visconti cabinet.
Love the nailhead pattern, very chic, very cool, but few can afford the $2300-ish price tag. So what to do if you want a similar statement piece but haven’t got the cash to splash?
A very clever girl called Tina Sindahl, of Signed by Tina, was particularly inspired by this designer piece and set about meticulously recreating the style using a very affordable IKEA BESTA cabinet, upholstery nails, a hammer, some paper for drawing the pattern and tracing it onto the doors and a ruler to accurately measure the distance between each nail (yes, I know, meticulous!).
Sublimely executed. I am in awe.
Tina also did this for her bathroom cabinets – just stunning.
Her instructions are here.
And finally, because we all love a
good nosey around someone else’s home gorgeous home tour, you can check out the rest of the fabulous and glamorous home here.
Her blog is an absolute treat, full of breathtaking inspiration, ideas and tutorials for swanky decorating on a budget, so be sure to check it out!
