IKEA just seems to “get” what need as we quarantine. First it was releasing their famous Swedish meatball recipe so we could make them at home. And now, they've released not one, not two...but six (!) illustrated design manuals to bring your living room fort to the next level. In true IKEA form, instructions are very much included. But unlike that Billy Bookcase, there are no compressed wood boards, millions of screws or tiny wrenches to be seen. All you need is what you have—improvisation is very much welcomed. From the Fortress to the Castle, choose your own adventure with these six super fun, nostalgic concepts.
IKEA Created 6 Epic Fort Designs You Can Build Using What You Already Have at Home
