Can you believe that I’ve never done an Ikea hack on my blog?! Well, today is the day because I’m going to show you guys how to make your own Ikea hack grid moodboard. After seeing so many grid moodboards on Pinterest, I knew I wanted to make one of my own. It’s such a fun way to organize your little knick knacks or simply hang the things that bring you inspiration.
Step 1: For this DIY we’re going to use the BARSÖ Trellis from Ikea. It comes with two grids, like the one above, so you can connect them and make a bigger grid as well. It orginally comes in black, but I spray painted it white, so it would blend in with my wall.
Step 2: After your grid is painted the perfect color, it’s time to hang it up. You will need to buy a set of screws for this. I repeat, Ikea does NOT give you a set of screws with the grids! I only used 2 screws on the top, but if you are placing heavier objects on your grid, then go ahead and use 4 screws.
Step 3: Now your grid is all ready to be beautified! The BARSÖ comes with three hooks that can be used to connect your grids together. Since I only hung one grid, I used the black hooks to hang up some of my treasures. You can also use s-hooks and binder clips.
I decided to keep my grid moodboard more minimal. I hung up a wooden ruler, a pair of vintage scissors, some number tags, and my To Do notebook that I DIYed!
Here’s a close up the hook that comes with the Ikea BARSÖ set.
I decided to hang my grid next to my favorite framed quotes. I’m super happy with how they look next to each other!
I hope you guys enjoyed this Ikea hack! Do you guys love grid moodboards as much as I do?
