It’s hard to beat the HENRIKSDAL chairs and bar stools. We just wish they came in more fun colors and patterns. Of course, the sewing wizards over at Etsy are here to help. You’ll find a bunch of options here; we’re partial to this one in abstract dots.

2. Sliding Caddy Tray for Ikea Raskog Cart, $31 at CarriageWoodworks

The RÅSKOG cart is basically the best thing to happen to kitchen storage since the bread box. (There are so many ways to put it to good use!) We thought there’d be more accessories for it on Etsy, but we do love what we found from CarriageWoodworks. In addition to this sliding caddy (which can be used to hold utensils, tools, and more) the shop also has a cart topper, which help increase usable workspace in your kitchen.

3. Decals for IKEA Kallax, from $35 at StickersColoray

If you have a KALLAX shelving unit, you need to know about these cute decals. They’re perfectly sized to cover the doors and instantly add some flare to your space. If you’re gonna hide clutter, you may as well do it behind a super-cute closed door. This shop has a bunch of patterns and colors to choose from.

4. Furniture Stripes, $24 at cutnpasteshop

Wanna fun up your IKEA cabinets? Why not add some stripes? You can order them in 34 different colors. Just make sure you put them on nice and straight!

5. Furniture Overlays Fretwork Panels, from $47 at HomeArtStickers

Upgrade a BESTA cabinet to look like custom furniture with these overlays. They come in all sorts of styles, materials, and finishes. (There are even mirrored optioned!)

6. IKEA High Chair Cushion Cover, from $22 at PossumAndPear

Dress up your kid’s ANTILOP high chair with a custom cushion cover. Right now, there are four trendy patterns to pick from, but you can message the seller, as you might be able to pick something even more custom.

This shop can change your kid’s IKEA play kitchen into an Insta-worthy grown-up one. Want something a little more playful? There’s also this fun shop that’ll help you turn the kitchen into an ice cream shop.
