CIRKUSTÄLT children's tent makeover | ikea hack | little free radical



When I went to IKEA last fall to get the LÄTT children's table & chairs and APA toybox for Sophie, I saw this awesome little CIRKUSTÄLT children's tent  on display for just $19.99!!!
of course for that price I wanted to buy it, even if I disliked the colors but loved the shape/style and the size of the tent!

Of course, when you offer a tent for under $20, everyone wants one, so IKEA in Stoughton was sold out. I went home and looked online to see if New Haven, CT had any... then looked IKEA to IKEA to see if I could have a friend of of state ship one to me. everyone was sold out. and I was bummed. I found it on eBay in UK, but international shipping would have meant I'd pay $65 for the $20 tent, so I stalked IKEAs product availability online for weeks waiting til they got the tent back in stock.



But all the weeks of waiting gave me plenty of time to plot exactly what I did want to do with my tent!

    1. it's still about the same size as the original IKEA CIRKUSTÄLT tent:
      Diameter: 40"
      Height: 48"

      essentially, I just made a new slip cover and kept IKEAs tent frame for the size/shape. :)

    1. Try eBay! The sellers charge a little more but it might be an easier way to get one!

  8. Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no backup.
    Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
