Small Entryway Makeover using Ikea Stall shoe storage and DIY board & batten

Storage solutions for small spaces

From their narrow shoe cabinets to their shelving, IKEA is a goldmine for storage solutions for smaller spaces. You might remember my narrow hallway makeover where I used 2 IKEA Stall shoe cabinets to create a more functional entryway for our home. IKEA’s shelving systems are also a great buy and help keep your smaller home organized and tidy!

Down pillow inserts

I’ve used IKEA’s down pillow inserts almost exclusively for years. At only $8 CDN per insert, they’re a great deal (and a great size at 20 x 20″). Keep a stash of several inserts and swap pillow covers seasonally for a budget-friendly decor change.

Faux greenery

Tucked away in the last section of IKEA’s marketplace area is a great selection of faux greenery. I especially love their faux eucalyptus stems because they’re affordable and look great. Use them to decorate for every season! I love how the look in our breakfast nook (and LOVE these rattan chairs I found)!

Drapes & curtains

I’ve purchased IKEA curtains and drapes my whole adult life and love them for a couple of reasons. First, they’re really long so I can hang them nice and high. Second, they’re such a great price! You can find curtains for $12.99 a pair at IKEA!
