    so creative! Best hack so far – and the fact it costs so little to do is fantastic – thanks for sharing this with us :)

  7. Many thanks for the great feedbacks!
    It’s cool to share my ideas with you and I hope you are inspired to build some new Frosta Hacks (a to w) or build my hacks.

    please watch also my movie:

    This series of Frosta hacks are some of the best I’ve seen artistically since I joined Ikea-Hackers ~6 ms ago. Before that I’d never heard of a Frosta stool/table.

    IKEA, *please* bring back this awesome piece of inspiring furniture!!!

    Until then, guess I’ll be hitting up CraigsList in hopes of snagging a few second-hand.

    Looks nice. Can use it to hold decor pieces in the living room.

  10. This is my favourite of your FROSTA hacks. It is a piece if art! You should submit it to Ikea for their designer series. Then we will find it sold in their shops for 1000x the price of FROSTA original ;) Love this!

    I immediately saw a cat tree, too. Ikea, bring back Frosta to the US please! (Just in case someone at the home office reads this blog.)

    Unfortunately, Frosta is no longer available in the US, as are several other really cool Ikea products. This is a great hack and, if I could get my hands on the table, I would definately find a place for it in my home. The cat idea is a good one.

  19. Snappy says:

    Very creative! I think my cats may like this as a perch so they can look down on me in more ways than one :-)

      I was thinking the same thing, Snappy! Well, after I got excited about using it for books & niknaks, I realized my five furries would quickly take it over!

  20. Cécile says:

    I think this is amazing and beautiful ;) and you share it all with the homemade manual : just great !!! Thanks :)

    I like it!

    How do you do the manuals? Just regular illustrator or is there some magic tool?

    • The magic tool is SolidWorks a 3D CAD program. I build the parts and assembly with SolidWorks and exported it to Illustrator. Maybe it works with google-sketch-up too… that’s freeware so fare I know.
