Ikea High-End?

Do you have older ikea furniture in need of an update? 
Are you looking for an inexpensive DIY project that appears high-end?

Many are already in on the best kept secret around, but if you're not, your world is about to be permanently transformed.  

Welcome, O'verlays

O'verlays is a company that was started by two designers, Cheryle Rhuda and Danika Herrick.  They developed a brilliant array of decorative fretwork panels that come in several sizes and patterns.  They are light weight and can be easily painted and attached to furniture, walls, mirrors and glass.  And they are made to be compatible with IKEA furniture! 

The site is ultra user friendly.  You can peruse the many selections of fretwork and then view the names of the IKEA pieces with which they are compatible.  Most popular styles are MALM, RAST, PAX, EXPEDIT, EFFEKTIV and LACK

Easy Steps...

1. Select Your Ikea Furniture.  E.g., the MALM 6 Drawer Dresser for IKEA $169

2.  Select your fretwork.  The Annie 7 X 30 panel $11.50 each

3. Paint and Attach the panels.  For this end result.   

Of course you don't have to use Ikea furniture.  The website provides the fretwork measurements so they could easily be attached to any piece of furniture.

These make great DIY projects:
