IKEA has finally begun to embrace the hackers. For years, savvy DIYers have been replacing those round pine knobs with trendy leather pulls, and now IKEA has done it for us — no toolset needed (well, okay, maybe an Allan wrench).

Pallet beds are insanely popular — but recycled pallets are often treated with toxic chemicals or infested with insects. Use the HJÄRTELIG platform as a coffee table, or connect them to create a single or double bed. It sure beats getting bedbugs from that pallet you found behind Costco!
