One Room Challenge - Week 4 | Ikea Ivar Hack, beautiful document storage cabinet

Hello, One Room Challenge week 4! This week I am finally assembling all the furniture for my boho chic home office, and I wanted to share with you my favourite one - this beautiful document storage cabinet. IKEA Ivar hack is definitely luxe for less and can be adjusted to fit any interior. Read more for all things necessary for this DIY and of course the final look!

As the colors of the home office are neutrals, greys & gold, I have decided to paint the Ivar cabinet in a dark grey shade similar to Benjamin Moore's Stormy Sky. The IKEA Ivar cabinet is made of wood and has a very beautiful texture, which I have tried to catch in the photo above. Because of this I painted it only once, to make sure the texture is still visible as it creates a wonderful background for the Zara marble knobs.

To elevate this simple furniture piece to the next level I have installed a custom piece of Self Adhesive Peony wallpaper and popped it up on these gorgeous Pretty Pegs Otto legs! Originally they were in a light wood color, but they have a nice smooth texture and it is very easy to paint them in any desired color so it would fit any interior style. You can see the beautiful final result in the image below!
