Do it yourself projects, or DIY, have always been very popular for people trying to save an extra dollar or just people who like to be creative. The newest trend that has emerged in this market is a concept known as “Ikea Hacks.” Basically, people take normal items from Ikea and with a little bit of work, they repurpose, they remodel, or just make it look much better. Ikeahackers.net was started by one person, and includes ideas from thousands of people all over the globe. They have step by step instructions on how to do every idea or hack, so its extremely simple and easy.
Some people assumed that Ikeahackers.net was actually started by Ikea, and was apart of some marketing ploy by a huge corporation. In reality, it was all started by a guy with the pseudonym “Jules”, who thought of this website because he wanted one place where anyone could go to in order to look up great ideas on renovating any type of product, specifically in his situation, Ikea.
Ikeahackers.net is where anyone can find thousands of ideas to transform any cheap or ugly product into something beautiful. There are thousands of ideas just waiting to be used, and most of them are extremely cheap and simple. For example, one person bought a few $3 flimsy Kort Art Cards and mounted them on wood panels to made them look a thousand times better.
Products from Casart coverings can be used the same way, with a little bit of creativity. Due to the unique types of textures and designs found in the wallpapers on Casartcoverings.com, there are endless ways that a creative person can use these products to refurbish or transform any type of furniture or item. Here are a few examples of how someone could use Casart coverings products in the same do it yourself fashion that made Ikeahackers.net so popular.

By simply just cutting and placing Casart wallcoverings on any surface, people can give a room an entirely different look. This type of high-quality, temporary wallpaper is a much cheaper alternative to buying a new piece of furniture, and works just as well. Although Casart wallcoverings were not originally designed to use solely on pieces of furniture, the positive response from the DIY and craft movement has made our products popular to use on a multitude of surfaces with stunning results.
Ikea Hacks only started in 2006, and it has grown exponentially since then. This is due to the fact that people naturally want to find cheap ways to do things themselves, compared to hiring someone to do it for them. That is why Casart coverings publishes tons of resources on how to use their wallcoverings, and design their wallcoverings to be extremely easy to install and reuse. By simply peeling and sticking wallpaper on furniture, it can make the piece look brand new, and give the room a completely different feel.
