Ikea Apa Storage Makeover

These cute Apa storage boxes from Ikea are so cute and at $14.99 they are the perfect price! I knew I had to have one for our playroom I’ve been working on. It’s the perfect thing to hold some of the larger toys.

One of my favorite things about Ikea furniture is how easy it isΒ  to customize. Here is how I turned this plain box into a fun toy chest for my kids.

First, the pine wood edging was painted with a coat of primer and two coats of white paint.

Next, my husband assembled this storage rectangle. It went together pretty easily, but I am sometimes instructionally challenged, so I made sure to enlist some help.

Finally, I applied self-adhesive shelf liner to the white center panels. I chose aqua and white chevron to add a pop of color to the room.
