DIY IKEA hack: APA Toybox

I don’t know how many times I passed by this boring little white box in the children’s section at IKEA. It’s only $14.99 but pretty plain and it didn’t match my daughters room so I didn’t give it much thought… until I saw the $20 LÄTT children’s table & chairs displayed next to it… My...
