This week’s Idea to Steal is perfect for the closet space-impaired {hi, my name is Erin and my closet is overflowing}.

It’s a simple DIY with a piece of an Ikea sidebar unit. The outer legs were painted a high gloss black, leaned against a wall and it suddenly became a lovely accessories rack!

I’m running to Ikea immediately because this would be the perfect spot for my scarves and the husband’s ties. I would even leave a hanger for my {or his!} favorite blazer, shirt or a just-back-from-the-dry-cleaner dress. So good, right??

Poppytalk features a bevy of super-smart Ikea hacks, as they’re called, right here! My to-do list is suddenly getting very long!!
