The ONE Thing I Always Buy From IKEA (It Starts at $6)

If there's one thing I love more than IKEA, it's an IKEA hack. Why? Because it combines my beloved affordable décor brand with one of my favorite pastimes: DIY. What could possibly be better than a multitasking product that works just as hard as you do? Clearly, you agree with me, or you wouldn't have clicked through to read this story.

So just what is this magical item I love so dearly? The IKEA stool, of course. This humble seat might be simple by design, but its purpose is anything but, which is why it's at the top of my shopping list whenever I go to the warehouse. From my dining room to my entryway, the IKEA stool in its many shapes, colors, and styles has many uses beyond its original function.

So in honor of this modest décor, I've listed a few of the ways in which I've put it to task around my own home. You'll want one in every room too. Oh, and did we mention it's also super affordable? There's a stool to suit every salary.
