#IKEAHomeLessons

    Over the past few months, our homes have taught us some very important lessons. Like how to trim bangs – and do a pretty good job of it. How to get our hands dirty in the garden or the kitchen. How to connect in ways that we never thought possible. And how to welcome the beautiful possibilities of tomorrow.

    We want to know what home lessons you’ve learned. Between June 25th and July 18th, 2020, simply post your lesson on Instagram with the hashtag #IKEAHomeLessons and it could be featured in stores, on IKEA.ca, in our Instagram stories, or even on an outdoor billboard!
