The Alseda gets a top

Am loving what Antonella did to the Alseda stool.

She transformed it into an oriental style coffee table. Antonella simply screwed a round wooden server on top and added three wooden legs, painted with aniline colour. Easy and cheap.

    Hai, I really love this idea, but I am also struggling with you to attach the legs to the rattan frame… So how did you do that without it becoming unstable?

    Hello, I have purchased two alseda stools to stack and would love to put legs on them but don’t know how to attach them to the frame. Would you please share how the legs were afixed to the rattan and wire frame?

    I’m tapping onto your inspiration and I’m stacking two Alseda stools and on top of them the Skala tray.
    Will keep you posted, with a photo :)
    Thank you!

    I would suggest you change ‘oriental style’ to ‘Asian style’ before angry PC police check in.
