DIY: IKEA FROSTA STOOL
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: one of the versatile and fun objects is the IKEA Frosta stool made out of birch plywood. It can be used for anything from seating to storage to a fully-functional transportation device. I even have a pair that I use as bedside tables.
Yes, it is strikingly similar to Artek’s classic Stool 60, but at AED 39.00 per piece, this stool can definitely become a fun DIY project and be converted/remade in a series of ways at a really affordable price.
If for example you simply want to “pimp” the stool to make it a personalised contemporary piece of furniture, you can simply do so with the help of a little bit of paint and a roll of masking tape. Here are a couple of great examples, as shown by Trendenser:
Another great idea is a little bit more complex, but totally cool and fun for kids: a dandy horse! Known as the forerunner to the bicycle (sans pedals), a dandy horse is a really fun toy and transportation device that kids love. Here’s a great DIY tutorial by Instructables (full instructions here), using two Frosta stools:
