Get those creative juices flowing, hit up Target, and who knows? You might become the next DIY sensation, just like Johanna did.
This TikTok viral target bookcase looks just like IKEA, but it’s bargain-priced
Target sells the Room Essentials Collection, a nice line of stylish and functional pieces that blend seamlessly with any interior decor. Whether you’re going for a classic or contemporary look, the wood-finish frames of these furniture items lend a timeless charm to your space.
What Johanna discovered is that some of her furniture looks a lot like Ikea pieces, such as the bookcase she used in her viral video to renovate her closet. You can see the resemblance with the KALLAX bookcase from Ikea, but with a difference in the thickness of the shelf boards and, well, there will surely be some difference in quality as well. But, hey, this piece by Room Essentials is priced at $40. Not bad for this bargain.
