More than meatballs and allen wrenches

The new 2013 IKEA catalog is out! I’m not excited because I really plan on purchasing much from the Swedish furniture giant, but rather because I like stealing styling ideas from the catalog.

For instance, I never thought about wrapping ugly thrift store frames in fabric (from page 71, clipped below). Spray paint, sure. But fabric? Now that could be a fun way to bring color and/or pattern into a room, not to mention a use for those leftover upholstery scraps.

Apartment Therapy seems to agree with me: click here for their seven “design ideas worth stealing” from the new IKEA catalog. They make some good points!
