Ikea Hack

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to Back to Campus: Dorm Room Essentials
IKEA is the college student's best friend. This easy IKEA hack involves covering Expedit shelves with wrapping paper - it's simple and pretty and makes a dorm room a little friendlier. Depending on the school's rules, this wrapping paper cover technique might also be a good way to disguise ugly college-owned furniture, like dressers and armoires.
