Looking to spruce up your interior without spending big bucks? Check out this simple DIY project by IKEA Livet Hemma.

It consists of a magazine rack that will add instant flair and personality to a room, by enabling you to beautifully display books, magazines and other keepsakes.

You’ll need a countertop in the material of your choice*. Shown here: SÄLJAN in black. Add four picture ledges, secure it to the wall, et voilà!

I know what I’ll be doing this weekend!

* A piece of plywood or MDF would also do the trick, just make sure it is strong enough to hold a good amount of weight. Paint it a contrasting colour for a bold effect or in a muted shade for a timeless look. Or why not cover the surface with wallpaper? I especially like this marble collection.
