When we can't have the expensive things in life, we can at least have the appearance of the expensive things by upcycling. With this Metallic IKEA Hack Bar Shelves tutorial, a simply spray paint job can turn these affordable shelves from industrial to fabulous! If you've had your eye on that piece that costs an arm and a leg (but is totally worth it), consider buying a cheaper look-alike and using your DIY skills to upcycle! It's easy, affordable, and full of endless possibilities. Furniture, shelves, decorative pots or vases any decorative item can be improved with something as simple as spray paint.
