People Are Making This Ikea Changing Table To Make Drinks Trolleys And It's Genius

Summer is right round the corner, lockdown is easing, and we're ready to do one thing - have a house party (within the roadmap rules and socially distanced, of course).

However, no party is complete without a drinks trolly, and while there are a few expensive trollies out there to jazz up your home with, one thoughtful influencer has shown a much cheaper alternative.

And all you need to make it? Some reflective mirror panelling, some paint and this Ikea changing table; the Sniglar comes in at a very princely £25.

YouTuber Miss Kris has posted a super useful video about how to fashion the changing table into a full drinks cabinet, which you can watch below.

First, paint the table to whatever colour you think fits with your living room. In this case, Miss Kris chose a distinctive black table.

Then, line the shelves with decorative mirrored tiles to help bring up the boujie-ness.

Now, get decorating your drinks trolly and add whatever takes your fancy - Miss Kris added some white fur and a small wine rack to hold bottles to the lower shelf.

The top shelf saw a pop of colour with several brightly coloured liquor bottles to brighten up the display.

Further bar accessories, such as a cocktail shaker, a champagne bottle, and straws were added, all chrome coloured in order to compliment the mirrored tiles.

The look was finished off with some napkins, some fresh lemons in a small bowl, and all the champagne glasses you could ever need.

That's not the only time that the savvy-minded among us have repurposed some Ikea furniture for the greater good.

Remember when people bought the store's range of Ikea doll beds and let their pets sleep on them?

The dinky wooden beds, designed to store dolls and soft toys, are the perfect size for a moggy or small doggo - and the photographic evidence is, frankly, too much.

The tiny bunks, christened the DUKTIG, cost just £13 from IKEA, are crafted from pine and come with an adorable linen bed set.

Trip to Ikea, anyone?
