The IKEA FINTORP hanging system is a welcome addition to most any space. It’s a great way to have “useable” decor in many areas of the home.
I consider myself part of the “cool crew” now that I finally own this IKEA FINTORP system.
Joking! (But honestly not at the same time) 😉

A naked wall with no idea what to put there
Okay okay it’s true, I have many naked walls that I’m still deciding on decor for. However, this little spot has caused me angst for awhile now. I knew it deserved something extra special, but had not been able to come up with what that “special” was yet.
I’d been seeing this IKEA FINTORP system all over Pinterest and Instagram and it finally hit me, that would work perfectly on the little splash of a wall between my kitchen and back door. Upon some research, I realized it was only available from IKEA. Sadly, Spokane doesn’t have an IKEA yet, so I had to place an order online. (Truly a big deal, and it took just under two weeks to arrive)

What it doesn’t come with:
It doesn’t come with the screws to actually attach it to the wall. I’d recommend using a Molly Bolt kit which is essentially a drywall hanging kit. This means you don’t have to secure it to studs in the wall. This allows you to hang it almost anywhere in your home.

Travis had both bars up in less than 30 minutes, I decorated it, and the whole project was complete in under an hours time. Such a simple easy way to add some character to your home.
Get a few for your kitchen, add some to the playroom and put crayons and markers in the buckets instead of plants. Hang on in the craft room and use it to hold ribbon and wrapping paper. Really, the uses are endless!
How to style:
For the kitchen, adding bit of wood, greenery and a dishtowel or two is great. You want a variety of shapes and lengths, as well as dimension.
Fake plants are another way to add some eye appeal. Want to go for real? You can do that too! Trader Joes sells super cheap herbs that would fit perfectly into the IKEA pot. I threw in a fake plant for now, but who knows in a few months time?
Overall this is a fun, inexpensive way to spruce up an area and add some fun eye appeal that can be changed out seasonally. I love switching out decor. I get board easily, and this allows me to keep things interesting!
Have you purchased from IKEA? I keep saying I’m going to do a day trip to Seattle and visit the store one day! I’m sure there’d be plenty of treasures coming home with me if I did that!
