Ikea hacker

Being in the IT business, I’ve associated the term hacker to mean someone who thinks up of a clever way to work out a solution to a certain computer programming problem and executes it successfully. The word has somehow evolved and could now be applied to a number of things in the real world and not just confined to the world of computers.

I’ve recently discovered a blog called the Ikea hacker which focuses on using Ikea products to create customised furniture and decorations around the home. It’s fun to see how Ikea fans take bits and pieces of Ikea stuff and transform them into something personal, pretty and functional. If you’re an Ikea fan, it’s definitely worth checking out. Who knows, it might even give you inspiration to create your own hack!
