Century to publish IKEA DIY hacks

Century is publishing "IKEA DIY hacks", a book from Jules Yap, founder of website IKEAHackers.net. The book is based on the website's premise to repurpose IKEA’s products into bespoke, stylish pieces of furniture and offers ideas for every room.

Ajda Vucicevic, senior editor at Century, acquired UK and Commonwealth rights (excluding Canada) with Linda Biagi at Biagi Literary Management for publication this August.

The book showcases "IKEA hacks" from around the world, with things readers can makes including a custom spotlight vanity table, a modernist tea trolley and a children’s playhouse. Each project comes complete with step-by-step instructions and full-colour illustrations and photographs.

Yap said: "I'm really excited about the launch of this book as it's been many years in the making. In here, I've curated some of the biggest and best hacks that anyone can make and use in their homes. I hope these hacks will inspire readers to see beyond the obvious when they go furniture shopping at IKEA. They don't have to settle for same-with-everyone mass produced pieces. Instead they can choose to hack it and create a one of a kind item."
