Stunning Studio Apartment Makeover On A Budget | Ikea Hacks | The Home Primp

    Studio apartments are daunting - you’ve just got one, open room to sleep in, live in and eat in. How do you make it a functional small space on a budget? In this episode of The Home Primp, Chatelaine Home Editor Alexandra Gater takes a trip to Ikea for some small space furniture ideas and leaves with everything she needs without dropping a ton of cash. Watch as she hacks the $10 Ikea Frack mirror into a wall light, jazzes up the Skogsta stool with chalk paint and makes an entryway organizer out of an Bekvam spice rack.

    The trick to creating a living space when your apartment is too small for a couch? Don’t forego the Queen-sized bed - instead, turn your bed into a couch with a few cushions and tons of cozy throws. And one Ikea Kallax shelf is the perfect way to divide this space and even creates a little space for an entryway.

    We hope you love these small space ideas as much as we do! Questions or ideas for the Home Primp series? Comment down below or send Alexandra a message on Instagram @alexandragater.

Yes, let's waste space in a studio by using a stool to hold a plant! Get rid of the "fur" rug as there's no need for it. She imposed her taste on "Carla's" place, but then again, we're dealing with Chatelaine and not Architectural Digest.

Okay people I noticed at 5:50 that you can see the reflection of the kitchen in the mirror, so she may have a walk in closet on the way to the bathroom? They don't show the entire apartment so people are just assuming a lot of things here. By the way... It looks very nice 😊

Things I have a problem with: 1. How is resident supposed to make the bed, with the bed squashed in between 2 walls and a bookcase? 2. You took no effort to hide the door to Harry Potter's room behind the bed. 3. I don't see a closet, which is what I suspect the alcove is for. So unless resident is a nudist, there's going to be trouble. 4. $70 for a wall decal? Could have done a stencil and spent the money on a clothes rack. 5. A table and chairs in front of the door. What could possibly go wrong? The white on white room needed COLOR. You chose from Disney Princess palette. Doesn't match with the pillows. Then you added red tassels, apropos of nothing. 6. Hate the shaving mirror lamp. Chosen just to show off your prowess.

I guess maths is not your strong point! Cost $710 not $498 Bed $199 + mirror $10 + sconce $13 + stool $30 + bench $50 + 2 chairs at $40 each = $80, spice rack $9 + at least 2 sheepskins at $40 each = $80, curtain $20 each x 2 = $40, light $25, pendant light $90, picture $5, heart $70 TOTAL $710 !!!!!!! Not $498 as stated. No price given for 7 H&M cushions plus throw, picture frame and mount, at least 2 tins of Annie Sloan paint, plants, rug, primer and spray paint for sconce, and the string of lights! Add to this that the client already had the key pieces, chair, table and divider, and there is nowhere for clothes shoes etc, this is a really crap vid, and very deceptive, the budget was basically spent on accessories, and the true cost of them was not even given.

For the sheep skins don't get them at IKEA. You can easily go to Ross or tj max for those. I got the same size she got for $10 and a huge rug for $20. They are really high quality rugs, I've had mine for a year and it still does its job. AND the skins are faux skins, so they're cruelty free.

Hmmm🤔 this young lady must have a closet on the out side Because I definitely would've turned that place where you put that decal at into a functional small closet & that bed including that little mattress was definitely half her budget, Its cute, I will say that.. & 😏 I'm sure Carla has changed it up by now...Carla has 120 pairs of shoes, 115 pairs of jeans,shorts & slacks, & 180 different sort of shirts, tees, sweaters, & jackets & has know place to put em.. Shes a minimalist So 😑 No need for the under garments 😆😉🤗 I like her style & um the bathroom & kitchen 🤔.. Yuppppp who needs it..👏🤘

Too cluttered for me and not intuitively designed. The space looks lived in but there is no storage and space. That heart wall decal is hideous and the shelf blocks up too much space it is an eyesore, making it difficult to fall asleep to at night.
