IKEA may not be the highest quality furniture in the world (it’s really only one step above cardboard), but it’s a necessary evil. If you’re on a budget – and who isn’t these days – it’s your best bet for furnishing entire rooms, apartments and houses. Even though it’s no Restoration Hardware, IKEA furniture still looks good and it’s a whole helluva lot cheaper. Unfortunately, everyone’s thinking in terms of style and budget these days and that means way too many people have the same unpronounceable furniture that you do. MyKea is going to change all of that by giving your mundane furniture a vinyl facelift. Pick a design and then your furniture, or pick your furniture and then pick a design. It’s part Threadless design competition (you can submit your own designs and make money on them) and part auto body paint shop – for your furniture.
