If you're like most of us, you undoubtedly have a few Ikea items inside your home and a ton of snow outside. What you might not know is that the ultimate sled is sitting in your living room right now.

For more step-by-step instructions, head over to to see just how Odam turned the chair into the best snow shredder ever.

Keep in mind the world of Ikea hacks does not have to end there, either. Try these Ikea tricks to turn your old utility cart into a chic bar cart, or make your old nesting table into an incredible ottoman.
