Lack and Irma Footstool

Materials: 1 Lack side table, 4 Irma pillows, Fabric, stapler, saw

Description: Pick a Lack side table and 4 Irma pillows. Staple the pillows to the table so that it creates a fluffy pillow look.

Take a piece of fabric and put it over the pillows. Stretch it really well and staple it to the bottom side of the table.

Cut the table’s legs so that your footstool is the same height as your couch. This way you can almost create a “chaise lounge”.

You can also put a ribbon along the table’s side, on the fabric, to make it prettier.

  2. It looks really elegant. I never would have thought it was a lack table looking at it. Obrigada, Raquel!

    Let me be the first to say that this is an incredible idea, looks absolutely amazing, and is a great use of previously useless $1.99 flat cushions from Ikea. I’m planning projects based on this so thankyou for the inspiration :)
