I can attest to spending WAY too much every time I visit an IKEA store. But now, thanks to IKEA Russia, they’ve come up with a rather cool initiative that won’t cost a cent – home-styled furniture forts!
Created with the Instinct agency, the initiative offers a series of Ikea-like instructions for parents and kids to make indoor furniture forts that update the old sheet over the table concept and give it some serious bling.
So, next time the kids are stuck inside and the “I’m bored!” whines begin, give one of these creations a go. Don’t worry if you can’t read Swedish (it’s not really Swedish!), just use the pictures to gather the elements required for your furniture fort from around your home. Then, once you have the basics, let their imagination run wild and add some personality.
